Trailside park area along the Wabash Heritage Trail at North River Road, between the West Lafayette exit ramp from the Harrison Bridge and the Williamsburg on the Wabash Apartments. This sculpture by Indiana artist John Mishler was dedicated in September of 2007 to compliment the Wabash Heritage Trail. The sculpture is 15 feet tall, weighs 800 pounds is made out of stainless steel that has been textured. The surfaces have been painted to relate to the nature that surrounds it in the park and river. The kinetic movement of the top two parts reminds one of dancing, thus the title, “Fishtail Dance”.
