Dawes Crossing is a unique public art installation located at the intersection of Dawes Road and Victoria Park Avenue. Created in 2012 by artist Noel Harding, Dawes Crossing celebrates natural resources of wind, sun, water, and wood. The on-site solar panels generate electricity to power lights and provide free Wifi and AC outlets. Surplus energy generates a modest amount of money to pay for repairs and community activities on-site.
