Description

See nature through a new lens and reconnect with your inner child by exploring the newest installation along Kingsley Trail in Little Bennett Regional Park.

Artist Inga Adda draws you to Little Bennett Regional Park with her new installation along Kingsley Trail. Composed of several new signs, the installation encourages hikers to slow down and connect with the natural elements surrounding the trail through play, observation, and appreciation.walk this way intro sign graphic

The appropriately titled installation Walk This Way invites participants to further explore Kingsley Trail by igniting their imagination and encouraging them to think outside the box. Each sign along the trail has been meticulously placed to coincide with its surrounding elements, like the towering trees that lend shade and the creek that flows alongside the trail.

The signs inspire hikers to stop and be one with nature and examine the way humans move through space. Whether it’s contemplating a tree’s secrets or feeling the ground beneath their feet, the installation forces participants to be in the present by becoming the performer.

You will find your inner childhood imagination returning as you walk further along the trail and allow the installation’s personification of nature to guide not only your hike but your inner thoughts as well.

The Kingsley Trail is just under 1 mile and is a wide, flat trail made of compressed gravel. Keep an eye out for the introduction sign pictured on this page to direct you to the start of the installation. The installation ends at the lawn that is home to the historic Kingsley Schoolhouse. Make sure to venture over the bridge to check it out! Parking is available on-site in the Kingsley Trailhead parking lot.

Take a break from your week and stop by this unique installation at Kingsley Trail at Little Bennett Regional Park for a fun and meditative experience!
