Down the street from us is a very interesting yard. There's this metal scarecrow wearing a raincoat and these guys:
For some reason whenever I see this I'm reminded of the Banana Splits Adventure Hour.
There's a stuffed animal towards the back driving the hovercraft and some sort of hedgehog masthead at the front... Don't know what the Cyrillic says.
Further down the street begins the parks. Ariel has 3 sections of park that runs along the center of pretty much 2/3rds of the town. The one nearest us is 'the river park', although technically there's no river. It's a series of man-made fountains, falls and pools. The center section park has benches, grassy areas and a playground and the final section just has benches and grass.
