Corky Eden, Karri Konga and I went to the new Container Park in downtown Las Vegas yesterday. Oh what a wonderful experience we had.
It is the place where the giant praying mantis lives beside the very large geodesic dome on Fremont and 7th Street.
The structures are made of shipping containers. As you can see from the outside, they are brightly colored containers.
The place is beautiful. It is a like a self contained city. The containers are stacked two and three high. The shops and boutiques vary in size.
Tables and chairs are provided for outside dining. We enjoyed lunch at one of these tables from Pork N Beans. While we ate our food, we talked about using containers as possible housing alternatives.
We didn’t see any Llamas, but the sign made us more aware of our surroundings.
The center has a unique playground for young people and for those who are young at heart.
Karri and Corky had fun playing lawn croquet.
I should have gotten this man’s name because he is an excellent musician who supplied great music while we enjoyed the park.
There is tons of shopping available. Unique shopping. Fun shopping. For instance, these bottle insulators. Buy one for each bottle you want to insulate.
