Silver Lake To Feel More Lakeside Lakey Like
Curbed LA is reporting that Silver Lake Meadow will open as a park, likely this summer.
The compromised plan opens a portion of the meadow--three and half acres--to the public, while the remainder of the meadow, another three acres, will be reserved for wildlife and native plants: coyotes, blue herons, gnats, ladybugs, etc. The whole opening/not fully opening of the meadow has been a touchy subject for some Silver Lake residents, who worry hordes of visitors will descend to this relatively quiet area.

Addressing those concerns, the city is looking into putting a signalized crosswalk on Silver Lake Blvd. and deciding on the public hours of use and rules. The jogging trail around the reservoir should also be completed by summer.
