A new art sculpture was installed October 27, at the Woodinville Sports Fields entrance on 131st Avenue NE.

The sculpture was made possible by a donation from the Woodinville Garden Club, marking three years of work to see the project come to fruition.

The new sculpture is a playful 4.5-foot tall bronze baseball glove that marks the entry point off 131st Avenue NE to the Woodinville Sports Fields. The sculpture was designed and built by northwest artist Georgia Gerber. This is the second Gerber statue the Woodinville Garden Club has donated to the city.  The city provided a concrete pad for the sculpture and will provide lighting and landscaping around the project.

The Woodinville Garden Club is a non-profit community organization that was founded in 1984.  The club provided a statue at DeYoung Park, contributed to the development of Wilmot Gateway Park, and has performed other civic projects throughout the area.
