An urban prank suggests a deserted dairy site should be converted into a playground filled with rainbow plastic balls.

This sign, spotted at the former Vitamilk Dairy in Seattle, USA, is a parody of the signs used by the Seattle Department of Planning and Development to propose or indicate when a vacant site  is under construction or redevelopment. The prankster has suggested that the three acres of deserted space to be converted into a ‘ground level ball pit pond containing 1,200,000 cu. ft. of rainbow plastic balls’ and ‘parking for 171 bicycles, 65 unicycles and 13 tricycles.’ The proposed playground would also have a trampoline area, giant slide and a rescue claw.

The Vitamilk Dairy site is often referred to as Green Lake’s Big Hole. The unkept, empty land has been an eyesore for over three years. If the council does actually decide to go ahead with this project, it would certainly be a refreshing change.
