The Handprint Walls at Fun Forest were originally created in May of 1995 - 25 years ago!
After ongoing attempts to maintain these walls and tiles over the years, weather and time have caused deterioration beyond repair. The Handprint Wall structures and tiles have been removed. There were approximately 1,200+/- tiles on the walls! The tiles have been photographed, assessed for condition, logged in to a database and are being stored.
To review an Excel spreadsheet of the tiles which is searchable by names that are displayed on the tiles, click here.
To review photos of the two tile walls and individual photos taken of the tiles that were removed, see below. Photos are not searchable by name.
