The 2000 Master Plan for the Silver Lake Reservoirs called for a safe, dedicated pedestrian path around the reservoirs. As of 2014, due to the diligence of SLRC, three phases of the path have been completed. In 2015, SLRC approached both LADWP and CD13 to convert the LADWP service road across the top of the south dam into the completion of the pedestrian path. This would not only provide fabulous water and mountain views, but would allow path users to bypass the narrow and uneven public sidewalk adjacent to the Recreation Center and Dog Park.

Both LADWP and Council Member Mitch O'Farrell have expressed support for this project, which could be relatively inexpensive and easy to complete within a short timeframe in 2017. This is one of the projects that received a high level of support in SLRC's 2016 Community Survey. What do you think? Would you like to see this in 2017? Write us.
