10. Barkan Park Playground

This is a quiet, shady playground located near Spruce Street, but you would never know it.  It’s got several nice benches where you can sit and watch your daughter and her friend Clark tear around over and over and over again, laughing the whole time.  It was only on the fifth or sixth visit here that I saw the Sphinx statute.  It certainly adds an aura of mystery to the whole place.
