Playing Angels

The park becomes wider here — 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.

Kelly Drive is intersected here by another road, Fountain Green Drive. Follow this road just a short distance away from the river and Kelley Drive to see a memorial to Ulysses S. Grant
