Path Pals was created by the Silver Lake Reservoirs Conservancy (SLRC) in 2007 to preserve and enhance the appearance and safety of the walking paths around the Silver Lake and Ivanhoe reservoirs. SLRC board members and dozens of local volunteers have removed more than three tons of weeds and debris – an astonishing 6000 pounds – from both the new stretch of path along Armstrong Avenue as well as along West Silver Lake Drive.
SLRC is also working with a number of public and private entities who have expressed support for our work and have offered to help maintain the paths. These include the Los Angeles Department of Recreation and Parks, the Los Angeles Conservation Corps, Los Angeles Neighborhood Cleanup Project, and Mia Lehrer and Associates. If you know any individuals or groups who may be interested in contributing to Path Pals in any way, please refer them to SLRC so we can work together to honor and respect this unique community amenity.
Everyone is welcome to join these community events. We believe this is our opportunity as Silver Lake residents and users of our wonderful paths to help keep them clean, beautiful and safe. To receive invitations to our regular weeding events, sign up here.
If you sign up now, we will notify you of our next neighborhood path maintenance party.
