What’s your vote for what’s next for the Volunteer Park Reservoir?

8642929657_1b633bd738_bEarlier this week, CHS brought you news of the start of a two-year test that will help determine what happens next to the 22-million gallon Volunteer Park Reservoir.

One vision includes a reflecting pool and a sunset promenade that echoes the original design of the park.

That’s nice.

But maybe we’re missing an even larger opportunity. Here are a few ideas for what the space could become. You can add your own or sound off in the comments. Because of landmark protections, you probably should include a water feature in your plans — bonus points for creativity. The CHS poll is below.

  1. The other day, someone mentioned a community pool for this space and that sounds like an awesome idea to me!

  2. A landing strip for the old-timey wacky airplanes from. The early 1900s. Where are they supposed to land? No wonder they faded into oblivion.

  3. Capitol Hill still doesn’t have a skatepark… maybe something small and a nice pool and garden and some benches or something?

  5. If it’s lidded… a world-class outdoor art gallery (with hedge maze!). Reflecting pond in the middle? Moat around the edges? The space is so gallery-like already, it would be the perfect tableau for more Noguchi pieces…

    There are so many underused areas of the park that could be used for less majestic uses (I’d love to see the dog park brought back behind the Museum!)
