The Troutville Sunshine Girls, with the help of local citizen Raymond Whitlock, proudly installed this sculpture in the town park for the LOVEworks Tourism campaign that's been popping up around the state of Virginia. This is located in Botetourt County in a very popular town park that's visited regularly by daycares and elementary schools so the sculpture is kid friendly. The park has two shelters that are reserved every weekend throughout the summer by families for reunions and also a popular place for corporate picnics. The park is also regularly used by hikers that come off the Appalachian Trail and cyclists from the U.S. Bicycle Route 76 - TransAmerica Bike Trail.
