Birds of A Feather


Designed and painted in 2018 by Visual Art Students at Marist Sister’s College, Woolwich.

The girls sought their inspiration from Weil Park’s non-human users – its wildlife and dogs. But like the budding artists they are, they have used some creative license to include a Toucan. Not a native, but nevertheless a colourful and unique addition!

Riverside Dreaming


The talented children of Riverside Pre-School used symbols that represent campsites, smoke, tracks, rainbows, waterholes and fish to tell the story of the Wallumettagal people who inhabited the area. Wallumettagal means snapper fish in the local indigenous language.

Park Life


This Library is literally a work of art! Local animal portrait artist Vickie Marchant has captured beautifully real life examples of the dogs that romp and roam Boronia Park on a regular basis.

It’s a Jungle Out There


Talented 2018 Year 4 students at Villa Maria Catholic Primary School were inspired by Henri Rousseau’s naive jungle painting to create a vibrant garden jungle scene, reminiscent of the garden that surrounds where the Library sits.

Harrys House


Harry Shelly Street Library was designed and painted by 2018-2019 Yr 2 students from Hunters Hill Public School and inspired by our beautiful Jacaranda trees.
