The Waterfront Garden runs alongside the River Ouse. A winding path leads from the Amphitheatre (photograph below) to the foot of the A19 road bridge and includes a "Timeline" of metallic strips - the work of sculptor Ailsa Magnus - that refer to key events in Selby's history.
Prominent in the area is the sculpture "ReLaunch" featuring four figures important in Selby's history:-
The sculpture (photograph below showing the monk and the miner) sits on a plinth of hand-made bricks designed to show the river wave or aegir - another piece of Magnus' work. Laid out with specimen planting and benches, the area is a pleasant place to relax.
The whole development won a Civic Society "Good Design" award in 2010.
