Seattle Jokester Redesigns Languishing Construction Hole as a Whimsical Playpen

While we doubt the 3-year-old construction "hole" that's plagued Seattle neighborhood Green Lake will actually become a play area—complete with 65-space unicycle parking lot—it's really the thought that counts, and the thought here is pretty clever.

According to local blog MyGreen Lake, the signage is not short on details and actually parodies the layout and design of the Seattle Department of Planning and Development:

The 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." [Furthermore] "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."

As you can see in the diagram there's also room for concessions and a "rescue claw." Hopefully Green Lake local government has a sense of humor. [My Green Lake via Boing Boing]
