City Park in Appleton is the oldest park in town. When students come to Appleton to attend Lawrence University, among their first discoveries is the "Ring Dance" sculpture by the late Dallas Anderson at the center of this nearby park. The circa 1996 bronze depicts six children prancing in a circle beneath the mist of a fountain. The children look nude at first glance, but indeed wear bathing suits. It is a funny strange work of public art that the restrained child on this post card seems to be envisioning.
