Inspired by the bluffs that are a characteristic element of the park, artist Bruce Meyers fashioned Strata Benches, public seating that evokes the park's unique layered geology. Cast from concrete, the four benches include local aggregate and color pigments to mimic the composition of the park's steep rocky banks.
