Welcome to permies!
The biggest design flaw I see is, isn't it pretty hot there? Wouldn't shade be nice for the people? I think I'd use a park more if there were plenty of shade trees to cool myself under. In the pictures everything looks baked in the sun.
Will you have volunteers to help or is it all just you?
Can it have a "messy" phase
Other things about the site - is it windy there?
Some of those pomegranate trees that were too closely spaced might make a good windbreak
Does it have access to water?
The lavender would look pretty around the monument.
I'm thinking someone planted and tended them, and it's better not to step on anyone's toes who could be an ally in this project. So try to honor the effort they've put in thus far.
