Amidst the grevilleas and banksias planted on the right hand side of the Board walk is Art Barton Park, named after the renowned artist of Luna Park. Arthur ‘Art’ Barton worked as an artist at Luna Park from 1935, the year of the park’s opening, until 1970 when he retired. In the early 1950s he redesigned the entrance and created the welcoming clown-like face that became the iconic image of Luna Park. He came to be regarded as one of the finest exponents of fairground art in Australia.
A major feature of the pocket park is a small bronze sculpture, designed by cartoonist Michael Leunig and sculpted by Lavender Bay artist Peter Kingston. This sculpture was installed as a memorial to the victims of the Ghost Train Fire and the sandstone block bears their names.
