Those yellow things are a cluster of dates. We don't see many of those in town, except at our local college and these two palm trees at our local park. All the other trees are trimmed and dateless. So, I was surprised to see these at our civic center park the other day. They will ripen and be harvested about January. Soon, they will be covered with brown paper to protect them from the birds.
