For The Sake Of The Lake

The return of Echo Park Lake to the people this past weekend after an almost two-year closure for renovation, was both a highly anticipated event for those in the surrounding communities, and big enough to warrant coverage by a lot of the local media outlets.

Me? I stayed the heck away on Saturday, opting instead to visit on the far less-hectic day after, with the crowds far less madding and the number of pontificating politicians reduced to zero.

What a beautiful old new place it is. An absolute jewel. My favorite sight? This specimen (click it for the bigger picture):

It did my heart good to see the lotuses once again thriving in the north lagoon.

  1. It was pretty much as crowed and hectic on Sunday as it was on Saturday. It’s settled down a bit today.

  2. Oh awesome. Its back in all its glory. Will they have the Lotus Festival and Dragon Boat races this year. It was a ton of fun when we did it in ’07.

  3. Fantastic photo. I love the flowers and am looking forward to visiting Echo Park.
