    Can you guys start a separate thread if you really want to talk about animal feces on campus?

    I’m all about the pseudo-beach, as long as we don’t put a fountain in it. ;)

    Speaking on that subject, there’s quite a bit of geese droppings around the river. I’d imagine the geese population will only increase once the dam is removed. Maybe there’s a way to naturally control the geese….such as a dog or reflectors to scare the birds….

    Anyways, that could/does pose as a deterant to lying on the grass around the river currentlty.

    Location could be tricky and might determine a lot about its traffic and usage. My first thought was near the Scioto center, which would also be close to the climbing wall down there, but that may not make sense. It could wind up attracting college kids, general public, or families, but it’s difficult to imagine a Cbus location that would accommodate all.

    Sounds like you just made a case for building 3 faux urban beaches in Columbus. ;)

    Placemaking’s Ripple Effect: How a Beach Downtown is Making Waves in Detroit
    By Philip Winn on Sep 26, 2014

    At first glance, a Google image search for the term “Detroit” returns an alarmingly one-sided portrayal of the Motor City. Photographs of crumbling buildings dominate so much that other parts of the story – a Tigers game, a skyline view, a Diego Rivera mural – fade into the background. Scroll a bit further and one image breaks through the monotony – a beach.
