Our Facebook BFFs at Reston, Remember When recently posted this exciting photo of a no-longer-extant playground along the idyllic shores of Lake Anne. Like another long-lost playground that once helped convince skeptical families to Make The Reston Dream Theirs, this one also has some nice skull-crackin' concrete adornments that would give the personal injury lawyers of today fever dreams of upgraded leather trim in their BMWs.
Nothing says "fun" like playing in a half-buried concrete culvert!
Or maybe we've got this all wrong. Given the location along Lake Anne, maybe this wasn't meant to be a playground at all. Instead, this could have been a never-completed upgrade to the jet-age air conditioning system, in hopes of opening the floodgates of
chilled "cooled" lake water to a sweltering populace, the end.
