From MB: 

Set the roof at street grade. Elevate the planted areas to accommodate growing medium, add some flowering Pink Perfection cherry trees (sure to draw lots of photographers in spring). Have a bit of open lawn on the sunniest spots (hard to get downtown, but we appreciate the effort). Build a wide, mid-block pedestrian allee. Throw in a chocolate cafe and a seasonal upright piano and presto!

Something for everyone.

From Don:

There are two ‘mini parks’ along 37th west of Knight.

Another on James St at about 27th– the ‘Bunny Trail.’ Not really ‘Parks’, but interesting ways to break up the block without a full blown road.
