I like the Carnival idea, but here's what I think could work well for everyone and for immediate use (actually, my friend suggested it but they're not writing in are they). Level off the big rubble piles, fill the lot with tonnes of sand. Erect a few dividers for a kid's area, lounging on lawn chairs area, beach volleyball, heck, a bar area if you want, throw in some merchant huts, a performance stage and you've got a modern day urban beach perfect for public use. Here's the kicker - if you want to build anything down the road, it's all easily dismanleable and you just have to get rid of the sand. How perfect would that be!!!
