Pomerleau Real Estate President Ernie Pomerleau approached Burlington City Arts with a request to add a sculpture to the site of a shopping mall under redevelopment. The resulting sculpture garden, which serves as a bus-stop, pedestrian gateway to the mall, and vehicular gateway to Burlington, has become a landmark on Shelburne Road. The “pocket park” features concrete gargoyles perched on columns and has been lauded for the originality of the artwork and its integrated park design.
