Rush Green, or as it is sometimes known ‘The Pan Statue’ can be found at Edinburgh gate of Hyde Park. It was sculpted by Jacob Epstein who lived nearby and was completed in 1961 shortly before he died. It was originally outside nearby Bowater House but was moved to its current site in 2007 when the Bowater site was redeveloped.

The statue shows a family and a dog rushing towards the green of the Park, urged on by Pan, who is depicted playing his pipes.
