The children's playground near Roberts Park in Saltaire has a curved wall, primarily designed, I think, to safely separate the skateboard area where the bigger kids hang out from the play equipment aimed at the younger ones. It provides a good surface for intentional and usually very artistic graffiti, though at the moment the painting is looking a bit scratched. It keeps getting renewed with a fresh design from time to time. I like its juxtaposition with the Victorian edifice of Salts New Mill in the background.
