It has been quite a year for Talahi Park, as our president’s letter summarizes. The final piece of the Phase 1 restoration plan was completed when eight hand-made concrete park benches were added between the hornbeam trees in late December. To pay tribute to the vision and artistic quality that Robert Foust had for Talahi, we hired artist Justin Paulk of Paulk & Co to hand-make the new benches. The first step in the process was to make a mold replicating Foust's original park benches. Once the molds were made, the concrete was poured and each bench was cast in three separate pieces. The benches were then installed between the new hornbeam trees making a stunning addition to our beloved park.
It's not too late to be a part of this project. Consider making a donation to Talahi Park today. Checks can be mailed to Kingston Pike - Sequoyah Hills Association, PO Box 11762, Knoxville, TN 37939.
