Reminder: Where Would You Put Play Space Downtown?

By Eric Richardson
Published: Monday, September 17, 2007, at 11:03AM

Just a reminder that you have one week left to submit your ideas for where we should have play space Downtown. As I said last week:

Why does Downtown not have a couple spots where you can go and shoot a basketball without having to pony up for the YMCA or Athletic Club? Could a redesigned Pershing Square include a couple of baskets? Could one of Downtown's tiny surface parking lots be converted into a court?

What are Downtown spots you think should be set up for recreation? Submit your ideas in the comments for a chance to win a pair of Nike Air Zoom RS+ shoes.

There have been a couple of good suggestions in the comments, but I'd really like to see more people put some thought into this. This week the Downtown News asks just what has happened to Downtown's Quimby fees, the cash collected from developers that's supposed to go to park space. Assuming Rec & Parks hasn't simply lost that money, where should it be going Downtown?

The deadline for being eligible to win the shoes is next Monday at noon. See the original post for full details.
