On the day I visited the park with the students for the bake we walked past this huge piece of "rock" to one side of the path. I looked once, twice - shook my head and looked again. Did I really see this huge phallic symbol in a park?
I asked one of the students (a girl) if she knew what the rock was about - and she glanced at it, seemed to have no reaction and said she had no idea.
On the way back I couldn't resist and had to take a photo of it. It was pouring with rain, and I only went close enough to get the photo. One of the students volunteered to take a photo of me with it - which I have to show on some other occasion, but she did not get all the "rock" in, so I might say "missed the point."
Later that evening I was with some other teachers and I told the story. All bar two of the group were incredulous and looked at my photo in awe!
The two others laughed. Apparently it is not uncommon to find such strange things in parks. One of the teachers has been closer than I and reports that it is hollow and is man-made from cement. It fact it has two other parts to it, on either side down at ground level. Do you get the picture? There is another park not far away that has a forest of them.
