Black turtle head on white background, tile mosaic in large wading pool with pine needles, Pier Park.
The whole turtle is probably four feet wide and is one of six figures, along with some water-use-cycle diagrams, that make up the content of the pool structure.

Warning label and sticker graffiti on playground equipment, Pier Park.
This is a weird off-axis spinny chair — there’s a couple of them in this playground structure on the south end of the park.  I was first made aware of them by a friend talking about what a horrible disorienting terror it is to spin around on them for a while.  Took my first cautious spin this afternoon and can verify that it’s unsettling even in small, sober doses.
I’m guessing that as a late-night drunk-in-the-park destination, these spinny chairs are total puke factories.
