    Any water feature in this parcel will be a maintenance nightmare and will not be suitable for use by children. Since it's only purpose would be decorative, I suggest replacing it with a sculpture.

    The play area for children should include a zero-depth splash pad designed for children age 6 and under. Standard play equipment (slides, ladders, etc.) should be installed for use by these young children.

    I hope any final plan will include better lighting in this parcel.

    I frequently cross this parcel from 8th and Pennsylvania headed toward 7th and South Carolina. You've eliminated a direct path (which, not incidentally, also eliminates the line of one of L'Enfant's original boulevards).

    Children (and the homeless) are the primary users of this parcel, and I am delighted to see that the designs are focused on creating a permanent play space for children.

    the idea of buidling a mini capitol hill here is just ridiculous. Kids climbing all over a miniature replica of the capital building? A periscope?! Come on! We need a bigger library, not some weird snail toy for privileged toddlers with nannies.

    I cannot believe that WMATA would approve a bioswale on top of its tunnels. This sounds like a disaster waiting to happen.

    fountains are often broken and/or dirty. Is this where funds should really go?

    I think putting the fountain away from the metro entrance makes more sense. Thought having it near a road with kids running around might not be the best either.

    As a biker, the crosswalk extensions make it really obnoxious to bike next to cars.
