Duck Creek Graffiti

Haley is literally the BEST at finding places to explore. She knows I love to look at graffiti and street art so she suggested this graffiti spot as a place to visit. This area was near where she previously lived, and while I had seen it from the road I never actually stopped to walk it. I actually thought it would be a lot creepier and smaller than it turned out to be. It was really hot the day we explored the area, and Cora was not having it. I felt bad because Haley was doing so much to entertain me while bringing her two young daughters everywhere we went. She's an awesome friend!
There isn't much to say about this area except that when I looked up the location I noticed that there were different pieces that I didn't see on this visit. The pieces must be constantly changing, which is pretty cool because it'll be like exploring a new place if I ever go back. The constant addition of new pieces also looks amazing up close when you can see the textured layers of previous works. You do need to be careful of the river too because it looks slimy. I accidentally walked into a puddle and got slime water on my leg. I couldn't wait to get back to the car and wipe it off!
How to get there
The artwork is along the Duck River on Rosslyn Drive between Brotherton Road and Erie Avenue. Street parking is available and a path leads down to the river.
Haley also posted some photos that you should check out. What is your favorite piece?
