A few years later this is how The Living Colour Wheel grasses and surrounding circle of trees had grown. It had weathered continual fun climbing by children and had minimal maintenance. In 2015 Adelaide City Council decided to upgrade it for the long term by replacing the grasses with crushed red brick, blue dolomite and ochre pebbles in each of the three colour sections.
