A Shocking Reversal: Has Reston's Most Selfish Cluster Found Its Earth-Toned Heart?


Restonian operative "Sean" sent us this exciting photo of the former tot lot in Moorings Cluster, which was torn down last year when the cluster's munificent residents decided they didn't cotton to kids playing within yards of their lakefront manses, earning Moorings the title of Reston's Most Selfish Cluster (tm).

"Sean" seems to think this array of metal bars and whatnot suggests that the people of Moorings have had a change of heart and are building a fancy new playground. Frankly, we're skeptical. Until we see tykes happily playing on swings, we're going to assume these metal rods are carrying a charge of 10,000 volts each.


  1. it's actually the new dog park and litter box.

    Hey, 1:13 am. Your supposed to masturbate until your blind, not until you only need glasses.

  3. is that the finished playground? it seems to be somewhat age-inappropriate unless you're training a gymnast.

  4. It is "under construction." There will be swings and DRB approved mulch. Yay!

  5. Their neighbors wish they would build their own dog park and stop taking their dogs to adjacent properties for potty breaks. All the new landscaping in the world can't defend itself against dog urine.
