Within the park the stone masons art and skills of Portland’s many generations of quarrymen are celebrated with huge and sometimes quite small hidden away sculptures carved from the rocks within the natural quarry environment. Always quiet and peaceful a walk around the park is a time for refection on life around you as you take in a different vista and works of art at each turn you take.
