Located at the end of Pond Road, a mural was painted across the length of the bridge at Kelligrews Pond by local artist Rhonda Manning. This is an example of a public art project initiated by a volunteer group of citizens.
The Town of Conception Bay South provides the following information about the mural:
"It was created in 2009 by the Kelligrews Ecological Enhancement Program (KEEP) to replace an existing mural that was deteriorating. KEEP wanted to beautify the trestle and showcase the beauty of the natural environment, with the hope that it would inspire people to pay attention to their surroundings. The artist was Rhonda Manning, and the mural features a depiction of one of KEEP's founders, Neil Tilley, standing by his old red truck."
