Building on the tremendous triumph of Stockport’s awe-inspiring Giant Leap Frog Art Trail in 2019 and the astonishing Gigantic Leap Frog Art Trail in 2021, the Stockport Frogs have taken an audacious leap back into our midst for the summer of 2023!
With the ingenious efforts of the visionary team at Totally Stockport, the town’s Business Improvement District, a captivating new trail of ‘Frogtastic Invention’ frogs has emerged, adorning the town center with their whimsical presence, perched upon giant cogs.
Nineteen delightful frogs, brought to life by the skillful hands of local artists, and sponsored by our very own local businesses and organizations, now stand proudly as ambassadors of various inventions. These vibrant and imaginative sculptures come together to form a marvelous, free, and enjoyable outdoor art trail for all to savor. As you journey along the trail, be prepared to encounter wonders and perhaps even learn something new!
