Hey, isn’t anybody from Philly?! How about Tarken playground in Oxford Circle? And Solly Avenue? Tarken had the first “twisty slide–” and that’s where I got my first taste of pizza off a truck. It was so great– when Little League games were going on, the trucks would line up along the fence: Mr. Softee, pizza, water ice…. Speaking of which, does anyone remember The Whip (Hint: You rode it, not ate it!)?
