Basic Earthquake Emergency Communication Node (BEECN)

Size in acres

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.
