This Is Not An April Fools Post: The Silver Lake Meadow Really Is Opening Saturday


(click it to enlargify)

I stood as near to the edge of the Silver Lake Reservoir as I was allowed and snapped the above panorama on April 21, 2007, the day the long-locked open space was opened to the public for the first time in decades and hundreds gathered on the green expanse to hear the nimbys rail and the politicians regale about the would-be park planned.

Roughly three weeks shy of four years later (and much to my disbelief), the Silver Lake Meadow is scheduled to “soft open”  tomorrow, according to The Eastsider LA and Curbed LA.

Honest.

  1. Nice to see it open. We need more public green spaces in this city, especially the densely popluated spots like Silver Lake where private yards are pretty much missing.

  2. I saw it when I took a walk around the reservoir recently and it’s a lovely space. There were also a couple of coyotes trying to figure out how to get in!

    1. Hi Jodi wow that looks great wish there were more photos on here of that I’m gonna have to go there and take a few of my own havent been there around that area in a long while…

  3. It was open when I was at the reservoir on Wednesday – quite a few people walking through. So I guess it’s a very soft opening.
