Council consults sculptor to fix whale tails
The Whale Tail Sculptures at the playground near Umina Oval will be repaired, according to Central Coast Council.
A letter published in Peninsula News edition 452 raised questions about the public art being run down with tiles missing and in a general state of disrepair.
A statement from Central Coast Council in response to the letter said: "The beautiful Whale Tail Sculptures at Umina's Peninsula Recreation Precinct were designed by a local artist, following community consultation, and were built as part of a community project in 2012."
Council's acting senior manager Mr Brett Sherar said Council was dedicated to ensure open space areas and facilities were well maintained and activated for the community and visitors to the region.
"Council staff are aware of the damage and are in discussions with the artist that created these sculptures in order to conduct repair work to return the Whale Tail sculptures to their former glory," said Mr Sherar.
