Twenty Mule Team
Oakland, CA
A Twenty Mule Team statue group was produced by International Fiberglass in 1969. It was installed at Park Boulevard Recreation Center, a mining town themed playground. It was a tribute to F.M. Smith, a prominent resident who made his fortune from borax mining. By the 1970s, the playground was in bad shape. The buildings had been destroyed and the mules were damaged by vandals or stolen. The remaining four mule statues still remain at the renamed F.M. Smith Park. I don't know if the grave marker for "Smokey" is for a real mule or if it was just a decorative piece from the original playground. For more, see this website. [map]
