Animal Sculpture Trail

The animal sculpture trail comprises 12 specially created animal sculptures carved out of large logs on green spaces dotted around Highams Park. They have been carved in situ by local artist Marshall Lambert. The logs are locally sourced and were provided by the Corporation of the City of London from trees that needed to be felled in Epping Forest.

The trail was commissioned by The Highams Park Planning Group as part of Waltham Forest London Borough of Culture 2019 and the overall event is called "Wild About Highams Park".
