The Ultimate Recycled Benches

Our friends of SEATAG (that’s the Southeast Austin Trails and Greenways Group) who have designed and built the (so-far) 1.5 mile Country Club Creek Trail practice the ultimate in recycling.  They taken three huge concrete slabs, dumped at the park at one point and hauled them to beautiful spots along the trials under some of the bigger trees and working with a local artist and volunteers, have covered them with tiles decorated by kids at the 2007 Austin City Limits. They look great, complete with coiled rebar coming out of the ends of several of the pieces.  Here’s one from pictures we took yesterday.
