* Happens in Styx's 1980 album ''Paradise Theatre'' during the instrumental break on "Halfpenny, Twopenny." If you listen very carefully, you can hear the sounds of the demolition crew setting up and a few people having fond memories of the place over the bassline, the piano, and a bell tolling a death-knell. This is set up in the song "Lonely People", where a voice at the beginning says, "I tell you, Irma...I can't wait until they tear that damn old theater down."

[[folder:Anime]] * ''CandyCandy''. Subverted as the tree gets relocated to a rich guy whose hobby is tree climbing (no, not [[MichaelJackson that one]]...) * In the ''MagicalPlay'' episode "How Distant the Showa Era Has Grown," a group of kids, including the son of [[MagicalGirl Nononon's]] host family, Kazuhiko, go to play in a vacant lot, only to find it being bulldozed. The kids reveal to Nononon that this was the last vacant lot around, and now they have no place to play baseball. After they leave, Nononon uses her powers to create some ghosts that chase off the construction crew. The next morning, she excitedly brings Kazuhiko to the lot to show him what she's done, but the construction crew had come back by then.

* "Big Yellow Taxi", originally by Music/JoniMitchell, covered by numerous others. They "paved paradise and put up a parking lot," although the song doesn't really specify what place the narrator was referring to as paradise.

WordOfGod has it: --> I wrote 'Big Yellow Taxi' on my first trip to Hawaii. I took a taxi to the hotel and when I woke up the next morning, I threw back the curtains and saw these beautiful green mountains in the distance. Then, I looked down and there was a parking lot as far as the eye could see, and it broke my heart... this blight on paradise. That's when I sat down and wrote the song.

* One of the ''{{Film/Beethoven}}'' sequels has the family keeping the dog go on a roadtrip with the father attempting to relive his (heavily NostalgiaFilter|ed) childhood trip. Disaster ensues (criminals follow them, one of the parks was taken over by a Japanese company, the RV loses its windshield...) Towards the end the dad breaks down since the trip wasn't that great the first time either (their dog was carsick).
