If you've driven around Pearland lately, you may have noticed some large painted pears around town.

The project, called Pear-Scape Trail, features 4 foot fiberglass pears painted by local artists.

"It was initiated by the Pearland Convention & Visitors Bureau to promote tourist activity in Pearland," Pearland Convention & Visitors Bureau Executive Director Kim Sinistore said.

The Pear-Scape Trail features 20 pears. They have all been placed around Pearland with one at King's Biergarten, the Pearland Town Center, Pearland Animal Hospital along with several other businesses and parks. See the full list of locations below.

The city hopes the pears will help enhance the arts and natural environment within Pearland.



In March, local artists unveiled a Pearland mural that was painted on the side of Sugared Pear Boutique. It features the city's historic landmarks and the community.

The owners of the Sugared Pear Boutique approached Art & Kustom Kreations owner Kelley Kronfeld and studio director Chris Garcia in February about designing a mural.
