Don't get confused by the name. It's not pronounced like they do in New York. It's pronounced "put says", as in "PUT your hat on, Mom SAYS it's cold outside".
This used to be an out-of-the-way location, but as urban sprawl has progressed Putz's is much closer to the city center now than it used to be. As it is in the middle of one of the largest urban forests in the US east of the Mississippi (Mt. Airy Forest), Putz's still has the feel of being out in the country.
Get your ice cream and head further into the forest (paralleling the highway). Eat it near a bubbling brook right off the road. There are shelters, picnic benches, swings and slides provided by the park and it's a great place to let the kids run around and have fun.
