As a horde I like it the way it is:}. I enjoy Alliance not being able to fix things.

The thing about rebuilding the park is that it would have to have a purpose - a reason for players to go there. Merely putting in some Gilneas/Night Elf/Pandaren buildings wouldn't really do it. Sure they could just move the Druid and Monk trainers there but since players rarely use them anymore that wouldn't work well either.
Each of Stormwind's districts have a unique purpose and players will travel to or hang out there for that reason, except Cathedral Square; nobody ever goes there because all it has is rarely-used class trainers. If it weren't for the portal arrivals hardly anyone would go to the Mage Quarter either.
Trade District -- Public area, bank, AH, repairs, inn, supplies, barbershop, guild master.
Old Town -- Training dummies, gear vendors, class trainers, profession trainers, inn.
Dwarven District -- Public area, bank, AH, repair, inn, supplies, class trainers, profession trainers.
Mage Quarter -- Portal area, class trainers, profession trainers.
Cathedral Square -- class trainers.
So what worthwhile feature could The Park have?
What could be a good idea is to simply make it a park but hold all special and world events there.

Besides...a few Shamans to raise the land should do wonders.
Odds are good that it'll be replaced with just a wall or something to do with the next Xpac after its fixed, if only because of the Org issue.
Leaving that aside, I still liek the idea of an ocean facing tower housing the Alliance Assembly, with floors and basements for each Alliance embassy, a private harbour and even that airship dock someone suggested earlier. Impressive, fits the lore, and doesn't do anything to affect gameplay.
The house of nobles seems to have fallen by the wayside. Lore wise, I find it most likely that, with the return of Varian, they've become little more than pompous dignitary figureheads.
This I more or less agree with, namely only because parking Dalaran against Stormwind would be a really dull solution. We've spent a lot of time sitting in Dalaran. We've spent a lot of time sitting in Stormwind. Something tells me that the prospect of being able to sit in both at once wouldn't really be "exciting"Why do you want to waste Dalaran on Stormwind? It wouldn't be a city state anymore, the moment it became Stormwinds new park it would become another district.
I maintain we need a Gilnean District.
There's already a Gilnean District in Darnassus, we don't need 2.
Since Hogger is the 2nd highest vote, it is obvious that it should become the Riverpaw District with a big Hogger statue in the middle.
I want a giant nuclear power plant!

You might as well say Orgrimmar has a full-fledged Tauren District, because Gamon stands around in Orgrimmar.
Gilneas architecture is some of the best Blizzard has ever done; it's a shame they've so far wasted it on a plot hole.
Gilnean. District. Needed.
Blizzard could even incorporate the Pandaren and Night Elves into it. Stick one of the old Worgen-y moonwell trees in one corner of it. Make the Inn or Auction House a rustic, industrial revolution-style china building to represent the Pandaren.
Boom. Three races encapsulated by an awesome district.

The Night Elves and Worgen should grow a small Teldrassil tree sprouting from the ocean that is linked to the city via roots and vines and branches and bridges. It would look pretty.

Night elf/monk district but better than the old park. With slides and an ice rink.
AND WITH BLACKJACK AND HOOKERS
Although they better hurry up, the homeless citizens are starting to go crazy...
Something that is dark or mysterious and not something silly. So no to Hogger statue, pandas etc.
My vote is for an Argent Tournament- Type area and other mini-games.
WoW MMO C community you impress me, I thought you'd all be bawling over how pandaren don't have their meaningful culture better represented in the Alliance.
Bravo, you're finally moving on.
- Gilnean district -> DISCARDED, the worgen have their own capital, their own realm and their own peninsula! Still want more? (also, as a kingdom of the alliance they are, can have their representation in the Old Town district).
- Pandaren district -> DISCARDED, pandas have their own continent (which already seems like a joke in bad taste) and are already represented on an island with a balloon inside Stormwind (which for me personally left over).
- Night elf district -> DISCARDED, the night elves have their own island and many settlements throughout Azeroth (they could also be represented in some corner of the vast forests in the City Outskirts).
- A paladin district -> DISCARDED, paladins have their own district in the Cathedral Square, in addition, in the case of the restoration of the Order of the Silver Hand by Turalyon and in the case of the return of the Queen Calia for reclaim Lordaeron, Stratholme should be converted in the capital of the new Lordaeron and the holy light, not only a district in Stormwind.
What is the force of the Alliance barely represented in Stormwind and which does not even have an official capital? Exactly, the High Elves, is to them to those who would have to dedicate a district in the capital of the Alliance, as they have been, are and will be a vital part of it.
Currently, the high elves live scattered throughout the lands of the Alliance, as they were exiled from their own land by their fellow traitors: the blood elves. In fact not even have their own territory, except the forests of Greenwood. And despite all, they continue to show their loyalty to the Alliance fighting for it every day.
What I propose is to locate in the old park district of Stormwind a new district dedicated primarily to the High Elves, where Alleria Windrunner can lead to all high elves of the Alliance when she returns.
Its architecture would be thalassian of course, but with their distinctive blue, turquoise and silver colors: it would be like a small Silvermoon as it was before its destruction by the Scourge (without demonic crystals, without crimson and golden colors nor these phoenix symbols everywhere).
In addition, this district could be open not only to the High Elves, if not all elven races and those related to these, such as the Highborne, the Draenei, etc...
In short, I propose a tribute to the Quel'dorei, dedicating a district in Stormwind to them, a place where the banner of the Silver Unicorn can wave again.
