Micro Macro Mojo
In October 2018, a 70-foot, glass and steel cone-shaped sculpture, entitled "Micro Macro Mojo," was unveiled, along with the pocket park that surrounds it, near the southern tip of Eastside Phase II near the intersection of Greenville Avenue and Alma Road. The sculpture is visible by travelers on US 75 and DART’s Red Line and Orange Line rail, and has already become a popular stop for runners, walkers and bicyclists utilizing the nearby Central Trail.
Richardson's Central Trail runs along US 75 from Richardson's northern border to its southern border. The northern part of the trail features eight pieces of public art, which are showcased on the City's new Public Art Walk. Ranging from colorful sculptures to choreographed fountains, the art found along the trail is sure to impress.
The “Rocket” is a three dimensional sculpture celebrating Heights Park history and the former playground pieces originally installed in the 1960s and removed in 2008 due to safety concerns. The art feature was presented during a ribbon cutting ceremony on May 28, 2013 when the new Heights Recreation Center was officially opened to the public and now serves as the gateway into Heights Park, completing a Heights Park Community Task Force recommendation to honor the former playground from its approximately 45 year history serving Richardson.
