Talus Balls

This abstract dome of about 1,000 stainless steel balls is right off a busy road. The best way to see this is to go to Fort Edmonton Park on Whitemud Dr S. There is a nice walking trail about 500 meters long to take you to the stairs that lead up to the sculpture. The sculpture is surrounded by what looks like a temporary fence. Its interesting enough to take the short walk to see it.
