Coulon Park: Dressed for Spring

The bronze sculpture of three persons, entitled Interface, at Gene Coulon Memorial Beach Park in Renton is often decorated according to the season. Spring brings out flowery outfits, while fall brings out Halloween costumes.

Coulon Park: Interface sculpture in the FallThe life-size sculpture is the work of Phillip Levine, who tried to capture the smooth walking style of pedestrians. Soon after Coulon Park’s creation, Levine’s sculpture was chosen for the park in 1982. Think of it as the Eastside’s version of the Waiting for the Interurban statue in Seattle’s Fremont neighborhood.
