The Peoples Gate

This gateway was the last to be added and became known as the People's Gate.
A community meeting was called with the artist KevinHughes in the local church hall.
There they talked of what they wanted their gate to be like.
It was that the park is for all generations and all members of the community, from birth to old age.
In the metal sculputre you can see a businessman, children playing, a pregnant girl, a busy mum, teenagers and an elderly gent with a walking stick.
The gate raises in a swirl then goes on up a post to reach to the sky.
The gateway was just what those at the community meeting had in mind and everyone was really pleased with the outcome.
It is situated on Commercial Street the main road through the village of Aberbargoed.
In the same area as the old "Buckets" used to cross the highway all those years ago.
