Fannie Mae Dees Park, also known to Nashville as Dragon Park, neighbors are looking to restore the mosaic dragon at the park. Weather and time have caused the giant concrete sculpture to form cracks. While the dragon is still okay for children to climb on the community wants to make sure the dragon will be there for years to come.
The giant sculpture is actually named “Sea Serpent” and was built in 1981 by artist Pedro Silva.. Metro Parks and Recreation is the owner of the mosaic-tiled sculpture. The neighborhood association is working with Metro Parks and Recreation and is in the process of determining how much it will cost to restore the beloved dragon. They plan on raising money to help pay for the project and are hoping to start restoration next summer.
This colorful piece of art can be climbed and played on by children. It is a child and adult favorite in Nashville and surrounding communities. Click here to find out more information about this project.
