Plans are in the works to transform the National Mall into something similar to New York's Central Park – not just a tourist attraction but something Washingtonians would use on a regular basis.

The Trust for the National Mall is working on two big projects: They want to revamp the Sylvan Theater near the Washington Monument to include an amphitheater for outdoor performances and a restaurant. Constitution Gardens at 17th Street and Constitution Avenue will also get a new look with more landscaping and a new restaurant.

The group hopes to have one project completed by 2016.
