Mirror staff reports:

Sculpture Park opened to the public this week on a grassy patch next to the Federal Way Transit Center.

The city's newest park, located at 21st Avenue South and South 316th Street, features a short walking trail and seven original sculptures. (SEE PHOTOS)

Featured sculptures are:

• "Tail Slap" by Pat McVay, selling for $9,500.

• "Black & Blue" by Julie Lindell.

• "Blind Date" by Jim Maggie Johnson.

• "Keatin's Curl" by Julie Haack.

• "Sugar Plums" by Jim Maggie Johnson.

• "Sailor's Moon" by Pat McVay, selling for $9,500.

• 'Remembering' by Jim Maggie Johnson.

An official ribbon-cutting ceremony will be announced in the coming weeks. The park will stay open until the parcel of city-owned land is redeveloped. Last fall, artists applied to participate in the project, which was sponsored by the Federal Way Arts Commission and 4Culture. Artists received a $250 honorarium for their works.

The city will refresh the park's sculptures in six months, according to a 2011 report in The Mirror.
