Free Ballpark Village!

There's a green in the heart of downtown St. Louis.

It's a place where over 3,000,000 people gather each year.

Yet it's fenced off from the public and sits empty.

Since the original plans for the site have gone on indefinite hold, maybe it's time to find alternative uses for the green?

As an interim use, it could be opened as a festival ground for use by downtown residents, workers and ballpark visitors.

It might be a soccer field or rugby pitch. Or perhaps the site of a new downtown charter school?

Has anyone heard if there's anything going on at Ballpark Village? If there's nothing, then why not open it up for alternative uses?

Here's an idea for Ballpark Village that could put St. Louis in the forefront of a green trend: How about a vertical farm on the site? Read about it here: http://www.occasionalplanet.org/?p=1283
