Best Little Park That Could

The Waiting Game (Sixth Street and Carson Avenue)


In the spirit of Parks and Recreation, the Nature Conservancy, UNLV, Iowa State University and the Downtown Project teamed up to drop a postage-stamp gathering place with a handful of potted plants and box benches near the corner of Carson and Sixth. The space is beginning to gather uncool graffiti, the plants are taking a beating from the summer heat, and its title—The Waiting Game—seems ominously terminal. Still, once you get there, it’s hard to not to #ParkletVegas and root for this little Charlie Brown of a park.
