Franklin Park is a beer garden during the day, and a sloppy dance party at night (at least on the weekends.) The space is big, with an outdoor patio and an area in the back with arcade games. There are also plenty of tables. So before all the late-night stuff starts to happen, this is a perfectly acceptable place to sit and eat a burger (they come from the attached restaurant Dutch Boy Burger, and they’re pretty good).
