Bonny Banks Barton Park Public Art


Commissioned as part of the Playbuilder initiative, Fusion Arts joined in partnership with Oxford City Council, Oxfordshire County Council and Barrett Homes to integrate art within the new play development at Bernwood Road play area, locally known as Bonny Banks Park, Barton.


Artist Rob Turner worked with local school groups, youth clubs and family groups from the Roundabout Centre, to produce over 50 mosaics, which were inlaid into reclaimed stone to form benches, gateways and other innovative paving features in the park and play area. The community project successfully linked the new housing development to the revitalized park area, as well as to previous public artwork on Underhill Circus.


The project was supported by funding from Barrett Homes in section 106 of the planning permission agreement.
