Glenaladale Sculpture Forest

Project Background

Glenaladale Heritage Trust held a call for proposals from emerging and established Prince Edward Island artists/artisans for permanent works to be displayed in the new Glenaladale Sculpture Forest, located at 257 Blooming Pt Rd. in Tracadie Cross, PEI. This phase of development includes 8 artworks created by 10 active artists.

This initiative was undertaken as part of Glenaladale Heritage Trust’s activities celebrating the 250th anniversary of the 1772 arrival of the Glenaladale Settlers to the Island. The themes reflect Glenaladale’s strong ties to the social history of Prince Edward Island.


  • HOME: What does Home mean to you? What is your experience of Prince Edward Island as Home? For those with an ancestry on the Island, what would those ancestors say about the Island as Home?
  • Who We Were, Are, and Will Be: How do we tell the stories of the Island’s people? What changes have we seen over the course of time? What changes will we see in the future? What does it mean to be an Islander?

Glenaladale Sculpture Forest is a collaboration with Creative PEI and the Confederation Centre of the Arts, with funding assistance from Canadian Heritage, Province of Prince Edward Island, ACOA, and people like you!

Location: Artworks have been installed along the Birches Trail and North Trail, Glenaladale Woods (see trail map below).
