In the Seattle neighborhood of Green Lake, a three-acre empty lot known to locals as the "Big Hole" has been reimagined as an awesome and ginormous play pit. The eyesore has been sitting there for three years. Mygreenlake.com reports:
The sign, a parody of a Seattle Department of Planning and Development land use sign, indicates that the empty lot will be used “to construct one ground level ball pit pond containing 1,200,000 cu. ft. of rainbow plastic balls.”
“Parking for for 171 bicycles, 65 unicycles, and 13 tricycles to be provided in 2 levels within the structure,” the sign reads. “Existing ramp to be converted to one 40 ft. slide.”
A map on the sign shows a trampoline, a concessions area and a “rescue claw.”
