In order to link all the Art4All sites, a new Ferndown ArtTrail has been created that commences outside the Town Library, passes through Penny's Walk Shopping Precinct to the Day Care Centre and the Barrington Community Centre, stopping off to admire "The Flower Barrow", a mural by local artist, Jill McKay and "The Family", a carved stone sculpture by local sculptor Sarah Moore. The route then passes on to the Ferndown Medical Centre to see the Rod of Asclepius metal sculpture above the entrance before passing along the wall outside the Tesco store to view the Ferndown Frieze and then on to view the Ringwood Road Art Murals before continuing on past the Girl Guide Hall, St Mary's Church, the Royal British Legion and the Ferndown Flags in Church Road. The trail then passes through Millennium Park, stopping off for a moment at the Ferndown Memorial and Garden of Memories to view the bronze rose sculpture by Gerry Clarke, then continues past the Ferndown Middle School to see the Wildlife Mosaics and the carved tree trunks by Chris Wood then on towards the Ferndown Town Council Offices and the Ferndown Upper School to see the murals outside the main entrance. The trail now takes a short cut past the school to the Wimborne Road, to view the Harmont Wood Arch and Floating Sculpture before running eastwards to Tricketts Cross passing the Beaufoys Avenue installation and the Wimborne Road Smiletones. The route then crosses the roundabout by Sainsbury's store and passes along Ford Close to the Recreation Ground and then down Barnes Road to the Heatherlands Community Centre before returning back along Lockyers Drive and Turbary Road to meet up with the Ringwood Road at the Turbary Roundabout. The route then heads westward along the Ringwood Road past the Ringwood Road Smiletone to the Old Fire Station, with its historic Rotary Clock, before turning down Victoria Road towards the Library and catching a glimpse of the Bony Tony art installation on the pavement outside The Practice. Approximate distance 4 miles. Walking time about 90 minutes.
