I love to walk at Coulon Park and no matter the season, I’m always joined by the stony walkers.
Here they are on a sunny day, without a stitch on,
but here they dressed for Valentine’s Day.
Here they are on Memorial Day,
and on Labor Day, honoring our essential workers.
They celebrated Halloween by trick or treating,
and despite the winter snowstorm, they still dressed up for Christmas.
I’d always wondered if they had some help.
Turns out they do.
Time to give credit where credit is due.
The ones I call the Stony Walkers are actually the Interface Statue, a bronze sculpture created by Phillip Levine. Acquired by the City of Renton in 1982, the figures are dressed up on special occasions, by a group of volunteers. You can read more about that by clicking here.
I for one, appreciate their efforts! 🙂
And by the way – Happy St. Patrick’s Day!
