Check Out Canton’s New Park Playground and Public Art The City of Canton recently celebrated the grand opening of Heritage Park’s new playground as well as a new mural on the basketball court at Boling Park entitled UNITE. Heritage Park covers 48 acres, which, in addition to its new turf-based playground, also features a one-mile concrete walking trail connecting to Etowah River Trail and Etowah River Park as well as recreational field space used for soccer. At the ribbon cutting for UNITE, artist Rob Walker-Bunda shared his vision and design for the mural, as well as the work and collaboration that went into painting on the challenging surface of a basketball court. Canton City Councilor Brooke Schmidt also detailed the importance of public art in communities. "A collaboration between CHS student Emily Hamilton, a nonprofit called Art in the Paint, and the expertise of talented local artist Rob Walker-Bunda, this large artwork represents unity in Canton and serves to create connection and inspire happiness,” said Schmidt.
