History

Three large golden granite boulders, situated near the play area, were sculpted into heads by California artist Marcia Donahue. The boulders, each weighing approximately 2-3 tons, were hand-picked by the artist at a ranch near Bakersfield, CA. The sculpture is aptly named Tête à Tête à Tête and serves as the permanent audience for baseball games as well as a gathering place for park visitors. The sculpture was installed in 1996.
