They Paved Paradise, Put Up A Parking Lot

This mess is part of our parking lot.  It is a dirt pile in the summer, receptacle of piled snow in the winter, and in spring.....a bog.

People will often drive or walk right over it.  Occasionally people park there.  It is unsightly and dangerous considering its proximity to the handicap spot.

Beth has complained about it for years. I think there have been a few children lost in that swamp, but I'm not sure.  One or two winter boots.  An umbrella.

Nothing we can do about it, says the grounds department.

I have a few suggestions:

This would add some LOVELY ambiance as well as practicality

A nice touch.  Who can resist throwing pennies in a wishing well?

"Pay toll...for no reason".  

Too scary.  And not indigenous to the climate here in the Arctic

My first choice, but a few more.  

Oh, yeah.

Get away evil pink flamingo!  You're scaring the gnomes!
