‘Walkers N’Talkers’ Stumble On To New Art Installation At Eagle Landing Park
Sometimes the best things about your community are only found by getting out and exploring it – case in point, on Sunday (Oct. 2nd), several B-Towners were out ‘Walk N’Talking’ their way through Burien when they ended up discovering something cool going on at Eagle Landing Park.
There they ran into a local artist and Boy Scout who were working on installing a structure:
We’ll let Organizer Maureen Hoffmann, who sent us the pic above, tell the rest of the story:
Yesterday, on our Walk-n-Talk, we walked from Town Square to the entrance of Eagle Landing State Park.
We happened to be there at the time when Artist Galen Willis and Boy Scout Sean Kent (Troop 392) were working on the construction of the small roofed pavilion where Galen’s sculpture will be installed.
The sculpture is a carving, in cedar, of an Eagle.
The expected installation and opening ceremony will be in about a month.
Sean Kent designed and is working with his troop members to construct the pavilion.
If you’re not familiar with these ongoing “Walk N’Talks,” they happen the first Sunday of every month, and here’s what they’re about:
- “Encourage active living to support physical and mental health.”
- (Part of Burien’s new “Vision”.)
- Initiate conversation between friends and neighbors, new and old.
- Nurture the idea of our Town Square as the “living room” of Burien, our center and gathering place.
- Create our own little “volksmarch“, in the European tradition.
- Support our local cafés and restaurants on Sunday afternoons.
