Lake Anne Plaza Gains New Attraction: A Cage

Is this fancy fenced enclosure at Lake Anne Plaza a temporary holding cell for children who dare to enter the "children's fountain"? Another performance art installation, this one to protest FEMA camps and/or Guantanamo Bay, depending on your political affiliation? A DRB-sanctioned public pillory allowing us to jeer at those among us who dare sully their yards with red mulch? We just don't know. We just don't know.

Update: The official explanation.


  1. Reston is finally getting its own Thunderdome!

  2. I believe it's the jail facility the RA (by way of the developers trying to raze the gold course) intends to hold indefinitely members of "Rescue Reston."

    A cage for humans on the set of "Return to the Planet of the Apes?"

    1. No, you big silly, it's for those who dare violate DRB standards. Saves money on RA certified letters.

    Guantanamo North!

    It's the Eric Holder Holding Pen for AP Reporters

  5. Nothing as fun as any of those. Fairfax County has a culvert that runs under the property that requires some repairs which could not be put off. They've promised that it will be completed in 6 weeks or less. We're holding our breath in hopeful anticipation that everything will happen according to plan.

  6. Two men enter, one man leaves.


  7. Actually MMA style cage matches every Saturday all Summer during Farmer's Market.
