Sphinx park. Bizarre Memorial Park

This little park sits on a major street corner, sharing a lot with a shopping center. The entrances of the round park are guarded by statues of harpies... or maybe winged sphinxes. Looking down on the scene are more sphinx-harpies chained to tall pillars. In the summer, ivy covers them and they peer down at you from the leaves.

At the center is a small grove of trees and the queen sphinx-harpie. There are stone benches that you can sit on while you munch a doughnut from the nearby grocery store and contemplate ancient gods long forgotten and the march of time and progress while the cars flow by.

Lion body, human head. Bizarre Memorial Park

The Antonio and Rita Pomerleau Foundation's Neighborhood Park in Burlington is one of the weirdest parks I have ever seen. A dozen towers covered with crouching double-faced lion people on the edge of a shopping plaza.
