Category:Seven Hills Park

English: Seven Hills Park, located behind the Davis Square Red Line station, along Buena Vista and Meacham Roads, in Somerville, Massachusetts, was completed in 1990. It is a passive recreation area which occupies land that was once a railroad right-of-way, and features tall weathervane-like structures: steel towers, each of which is topped by a icon representing one of the seven hills of Somerville, some of which no longer exist, having been leveled. The brick bases have informational signs which give the history of each hill. Also in the park are 10 life-sized cast-stone sculptures by artist James Tyler, which were moved to the park from elsewhere in 1996. Because of vandalism to the sculpture's faces, bronze masks were added later. (Sources: Seven Hills Park and Seven Hills)
