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.
