Giant turtle sighting at Kiwanis Park

Pittsboro, NC- There is a new turtle sculpture at the Kiwanis Park. The turtle replaced the white oak car installed about six years ago. Part of the appeal of natural playgrounds is that they're never a fixed constant; they're always evolving.

This sturdy concrete turtle should complement the quirky little park for quite some time though. It weighs in at 1,800 pounds and is about 5 feet long by 4 feet wide by about 3 feet tall. Luckily we don't have to feed it.

Michael Winn of Integrated Commercial Contractors helped coax the turtle into position. Thanks to Michael for the donation of his time and equipment!
