AskDowntown is a weekly Friday feature where we pass your questions on to the Downtown crowd. Got a question? Send it to

Parks are a favorite topic here at blogdowntown, and it wasn't too long ago that we asked where to put some spaces for play. The city's Department of Recreation and Parks is currently holding a Citywide Parks Needs Assessment with workshops in recreation centers around the city. This Wednesday the show comes Downtown, with a 6:30pm session in the DWP cafeteria (111 N. Hope).

You may have ideas about green space or how to use a vacant lot. Is a dog park a need over a place for kids? Should Pershing Square invest in more summer concerts or mount theater productions?

Forget about Qumby funds for a moment, and tap into your personal wisdom to talk about ideas. If you are unable to attend the workshop Jan 30, there's a survey you can fill out on the site.

So with that, this week's AskDowntown question: When it comes to park and green space, what does Downtown need?
