Welcome to the forums!

1. Euonymus americanus.

https://www.google.co.uk/searc...

2. Probably Aster sp. now I believe many have been renamed Symphyotrichum sp.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/...)

https://www.google.co.uk/searc...

3. Solidago sp.

https://www.google.co.uk/searc...

4. A few more images would be helpful.
Do the red berries belong to the leaves?

Hi jimbird, Welcome! from me too!
#1 I agree, looks like seed pods of Strawberry Bush (Euonymus americanus)

#2 I agree, appears to be a variety of Symphyotrichum, possibly:
Heath Aster (Symphyotrichum ericoides)

#3 I agree, Goldenrod; possibly Canadian Goldenrod (Solidago canadensis)

#4 As Silversurfer suggested, it is difficult to say for sure with this one, additional photos might help to get an exact ID. My first thought was possibly a variety of Greenbriar (Smilax). Two for comparison:

Laurel Greenbriar (Smilax laurifolia) : https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/...

Coral Greenbriar (Smilax walteri) https://www.wildflower.org/gal...

Thanks to you both for your welcome and insights. Have cropped only photo I have of #4. Obviously out of focus. The leaves and berries of same plant. The berries, at least some, appear oblong in shape. Don't know if that helps. Will get better images on return trip. jimbird

The veins on the leaves of Smilax tend to be 3 nerved...so don't think that fits.
Not sure if all Smilax are vines with tendrils but S. laurifolia and S. walteri are.

Does the mystery plant have any tendrils?

Where in the world is this urban park?

3. Solidago canadensis is not normally planted in garden due to the rhizomous roots...according to Missouri Botanical garden.... Height: 4.00 to 5.00 feet Spread: 4.00 to 5.00 feet

http://www.missouribotanicalga...

In UK there are many named varieties...without knowing more ..eg height etc I would not like to attempt to say which one it might be.

I'm leaning toward Spicebush as well.

I am a strong believer in the simple fact is that what matters in this life is how we treat others. I think that's what living is all about. Not what I've done in my life but how I've treated others.
