The neighborhood with the 2010 lots placed. Notice how nicely they fit together.
The "pool n playground" lot as designed in 2010. The statues, fountains, and bright blue carpet are placeholders for future EP stuff with the same footprint.
After swapping out the new AL playground equipment. The lumberjack statue is still holding the place of a sprinkler, and the two beach umbrellas are holding the place of two twirl-spin-and-wobble toys. Both are crafted, so both will have to be placed by a sim who buys the lot for the thirty seconds or so it takes to place them.
The community center lot as designed in 2010. The bright blue carpet on the second floor was originally a placeholder for a model train set, and it would have fit nicely, too.
But one change I made in the intervening four years was to make that a spot for night classes or lectures instead, and I think that works better. Note how the basketball courts dropped right in to the spots that were waiting patiently for them.

And a final shot of the neighborhood view with the lots updated. Doesn't it look grand?
