By merely taking a walk along the Heritage Trail, we can better appreciate this ecological treasure of sand, wetlands and hardwood, home to our species and others, between bay and ocean, at a favorable latitude right off the Gulf Steam. Island Paradise may take on a larger meaning the more we know about our own natural resources, wildlife and history.
The Heritage Trail helps us explore our unique history. Even in the suburbanized built-environment that is the modern core of the Island, if we pause with discernment in the heart of the Village following the Art in Public Places self-guided tour, our sensibilities may be sharpened in a different way, reinforced by our public art installations, each alluding to our history and heritage in a particular way.
The Jose Bedia plazas imagine our place in nature along Crandon, our busy main road, illustrating our park-to-Village-to-park linkage and reminding us that Village life is rooted in and inseparable from our Island environment. And the Pleated Gnomon, a place of repose, teaching tool and cosmological clock all in one, reminds us of our connection in time and nature — the seamless endless passage of time and cycle of life demonstrated by the earth moving through space; endings and ever-coming new beginnings. The Heritage Trail reveals transient settlements giving way to a military camp, giving way to a plantation, giving way to a Village.
We see the same stars at night. Time is marked by the same tidal changes and similar shadows in morning and afternoon. And our public art reminds us of this and of the relationship between the transient and eternal; the built and natural.
