Silver Lake Reservoirs Conservancy

LOCATION: Northeast end of Ivanhoe Reservoir

Nestled in an olive grove beside the Neighborhood Nursery School, just off the path on Tesla Avenue, is the pocket park that SLRC advocated for when the Tesla sidewalk was installed in 2012. Since it was opened, SLRC has supported and improved this public space by:

  • Irrigating the mature olive trees to help stave off the recent drought

  • Maintaining its two benches and drinking fountain

  • Installing rock planters around the olive trees

  • Planting and caring for the California native plants in the new planters

  • Installing a granite boulder that displays the plaque commemorating the reservoirs as L.A. Historic-Cultural Monument No. 422 (which SLRC lobbied for back in 1989!)
