Hi, kids, I am the Tree of Eastgate, and my friends, Siba, the ladybird, Hopps, the frog, Tinks, the snail, and Sne, the jungle-gym snake, love to hang out with me, and hop onto my swing.
Just like my fellow tree friends, the Piazza Three, I am made of metal, but I am a little smaller, standing at three-and-a-half metres tall.
And, yes, I do look a little different because of all my colourful leaves. Do they remind you of a box of sweets?
Did you know that 200 of my green leaves were painted by friends from 28 schools in the Eastgate area? I am so lucky to have such special friends.
I don’t move around like my animal friends, but it always feels like a party because Siba, the ladybird, Tinks, the snail, Hopps, the frog, and Sne, the jungle gym snake, visit me every day, they especially like to hop onto my swing.
Come and take a seat and ask your parents to snap a photo of you and me.
