This is a sculpture made for the city of Kingston’s 300th anniversary in 1973. Created by the sculptor Yvon Cozic, “Pollution” was meant as a view of what commonly happened in those days. The concrete sculpture has two green pipes with yellow, red, and white “sludge” pouring out towards the water. It has been repainted many times over the years, even once by students who vandalized it to look like Coca-Cola and 7-up cans.
It is located in MacDonald Park in Kingston near the Kingston General Hospital’s helipad. It is easy to see from the bike path and is often climbed on by children.
