Ed Pien’s ‘FOREST WALK’ in Wellesley-Magill Park sparkles at night

By day, ‘Forest Walk’ is a 144 foot-long, 8 foot-high plasma and watercut painted steel and coloured glass fence.  At night LED strip lights embedded in the sculpture glow brilliantly.  You’ll find the sculpture in WELLESLEY-MAGILL PARK, Sherbourne Street, north of Wellesley.
