Carved wooden sculpture on View Island.

View Island is a small island near Caversham Lock, on the River Thames at Reading, Berkshire in England.

The island was a derelict boatyard when Reading Borough Council took it over in 1998 and restored it. It is a quiet, relaxing island with grassy paths and seating. It is set out as a small park containing several wooden chain-saw carved sculptures, although all but one having rotted away. It connects to Caversham via Heron Island, which has private riverside housing and is connected by road to Lower Caversham.

A body was found on View Island in February 2011.
