FILE - This Feb. 28, 2013 file photo shows a visitor viewing the National Mall from the Lincoln Memorial looking towards the Washington Monument and the U.S. Capitol in Washington. Plans to overhaul neglected sites on Washington's National Mall with lakeside gardens, grassy amphitheaters and restaurants with views of the nation's memorials are getting a boost from a German carmaker. Volkswagen of America announced a $10 million gift Thursday to the nonprofit Trust for the National Mall to jumpstart fundraising for the park. It's the largest private gift to date to restore the most-visited national park. (AP Photo/Alex Brandon, File) less
