Hopefully by now you will have seen the gorgeous Snowdogs by the Sea sculptures popping up across the city. Each week, to help you make the most of the art trail, we will focus on a different area of the city telling you how you can get to each of the dogs and what to look out for along the way.
Of course the obvious thing to do would be to start the trail at Snowdog number 1 but we've decided to start with the London Road area and dogs 40 - 44...
|42. Sparky - Artist: David Sith / Sponsor: Wild in Art|
We decided to start our trail at Preston Park which is close to London Road train station and is on the number 5 bus route. Snowdog 42 also known as Sparky can be found by the South entrance near the Rose Garden. With his sparkling nose and glittery ears Sparky brings a touch of bling to the park. Take some time out to enjoy the park which is home to the Preston Park Rockery and the Preston Twins believed to be the largest and oldest Elm Trees in the world!
|43. The Snowdog|
Artist: Anonymous / Sponsor: Penguin
Continue down London Road and make sure you look out for The Martlets Shop where we spotted a Snowpup in the window! Pop in to see the Snowdog merchandise avaialable to buy or simply to see if you can grab a bargain.
After shopping continue walking along London Road until you get to Baker Street. Turn left and walk to the end of the road, then cross over Ditchling Road to enter The Level. Here you will find Snowdog number 41 - Gizmo. If you need to check your look after all this walking then Gizmo can help with his shiny surface! The Level has an international standard skate park as well as table tennis, chess, a café and a children's play area.
