I haven't been online to see the park that's there now (it looks like it's just a bunch of trees, now?), but building the Space Needle in Area 1 is a-okay with me (and I terraformed that area, so). If we were voting, I'd think Area 2 would actually make more sense for any new park — it'd continue the sculpture park that's already there to its south, sort of like Portland's series of Park Blocks. And it's more centrally located, and also that area is probably too narrow to build anything big anyway (though its enlongated shape does sort of resemble NYC's Central Park). But that's just me.
Either way, I can't wait to see it grey
