Anton Hart’s public artwork The Forest of Dreams is a work that explores the contemporary landscape. Note how it just as easily reads Dreams of the Forest. Words have a long history of use in describing public space.

The four words remain as entry points from the road into the park, creating and maintaining a separation of space which the artist suggests is important in understanding the pre-settlement history of the location. The benches that accompany the work invite people to sit and contemplate their surroundings.

The work also acts to unite the four quadrants of the Square.
