Thank you Mac Daddy. I love seeing transformations like that!
I think there are good and bad points about the new park. I'm excited about it having a boardwalk, new music, and I think once the planters fill in it will look better. I am concerned about shade in that area and, while it is nice that it is open for viewing WOC, I hope it won't come across as barren and sizzling hot in the summers. I know the fountain play area will help somewhat with that - but lack of shade can really hurt the atmosphere of a park. Aside from shade my only other dislike is the globe lights. I wish they had chosen a different shape. Otherwise I think they did a decent job with it.
