Albany-- Tiny tots are painting tiny tiles for Turtle Grove Park. Campers at the YMCA on Gillionville Road painted clay butterflies, alligators, and of course, turtles.

The clay tiles will eventually be placed around the playground at Turtle Grove Park on the banks of the Flint River.

The children that did not want to use an animal pattern for their tile used their imagination instead. Junior League Member Christy Eakes says, "Down on the riverbanks you may see a bobcat, an owl, several snakes, turtles, and fish of course. Butterflies, dragonflies, flowers and trees and you may even see an elephant down there if you are lucky!

750 square feet of park space will be covered with thousands of tiles local children have created. If you would like your child to design a tile, you can call 377-PARK to make a reservation. The Junior League will continue with the tile project until mid-August.
