Davis Amtrak Depot Serpentine Bench

Davis Amtrak Depot. Native plants create an ecologically sensitive environment where serpentine straw bale benches depict Central Valley seasons with granite tile mosaics. Granite boulders memorialize immigrant workers who died bringing railroad tracks through the Sierra Nevada, linking California to the rest of the nation. Among the boulders are lush-leafed Paulownia trees. Wood from the Paulownia tree was traditionally used for bridal chests in China, representing the hope of families for the future of their children.
