Best City Beautification

Town Lake Park

The aftermath of the dot-com bust may have slightly altered the vast, lush garden the city master-planned almost 10 years ago, but the recently dedicated Town Lake Park, replete with a giant concrete map of Texas and dancing water fountains, finally opened in August. And since the lake itself was recently renamed after Lady Bird Johnson, the city is taking nominations from the public for a new park name. So, ponder possible new ways to refer to this playful 21-acre spread, and give yourself a contemplative head scratch as you try to figure out that new roundabout on Riverside.
