Turtle Boy Tours – Ice Cream and Art

You’ve got a couple of hours to spend and it’s a nice day out but you can’t think of anything to do. We’ve all been there so here’s a suggestion: make a visit to  WooBerry for ice cream then go check out the Pow! Wow! Worcester 2017 murals on the walls of Elm Park Community School. WooBerry is located at the corner of West and Highland street and the murals are about a block down West Street.

The Ice Cream

WooBerry’s owners have intentionally created a place for people to feel comfortable taking their time and relaxing. They’ve got a great playlist, seating,  and included art from local artists. The staff is amazing.  It’s always a pleasant experience.

The ice cream and yogurt are made in-house. They even have vegan ice cream. The ice cream is made in small batches so there are often new flavors to try.

There’s street parking on Highland, West, and surrounding streets. There’s also some parking in a lot behind the shop. If you park there, please be excellent and move your vehicle before you go look at the art at the school.

WooBerry is locally owned and operated. I prefer to support local business when I can. Follow WooBerry on Instagram @wooberry_icecream or Facebook.

The Art

After ice cream, head down the street and have a look at the beautiful 2017 Pow! Wow! Worcester murals on the walls of Elm Park Community School.

These are just a few of the murals. I’ve listed the artists names and links to their sites or social media below the map so you can check them out.

Turtle Boy Tours – The Mural Edition

I’ve created a map and information to help you take a self-guided walking tour of the Pow! Wow! Worcester, 2016 murals.

This map shows the locations of the largest murals done during the Pow! Wow! Worcester festival but be on the lookout for smaller pieces of work and a few pre-existing works.

Click the icons on the map for additional information, links and photos. Links to the artists’ websites and Instagrams are listed after the image gallery and within the map.
