Playing Angels

Leaving the Samuel Memorial, proceed a quarter of a mile upriver. Here the park becomes wider — meadowlike in its expanse — and offers two landmarks to guide us. Near the river's edge are three columns holding Carl Milles trio of "Playing Angels" aloft. They are piping, cavorting angels, dancing in time to their music.
