Bear at Overlook Park

bear Oct 2015

Recently I walked through Overlook Park and took these pictures of the bronze bear statue that was donated to Ridgefield by artist ‘Ratso’ Ratterman. This is not the final location for the bear, but one to let everyone know we have it and how spectacular it is. It will be permanently affixed in a suitable area for display, and at that time the artist will be honored formally.

Another addition to the park is the black metal bench that will be installed on a concrete pad along the pathway. I didn’t take a photo of it because it’s just sitting on the lawn at this time, while we wait for the concrete to cure, but the designs on the back echo the designs on the panels above the stage. Check it out when you’re downtown – the park just keeps getting better and better.
