Silver Lake park builders now wait for their work to take root

Volunteers completed their eighth and final work day on Sunday at the Parkman Triangle, a patch of green space created out of a once barren section of asphalt at Parkman Avenue and Silver Lake Boulevard. Silver Lake residents Ara Babaian and John Southern spent more than two years working on the project, which is now 98% complete. Said Babaian:

“We have enjoyed great responses from people driving by who honk at us in approval, and some who stopped to ask how we did this so they can replicate it in their neighborhoods. We also spoke with people walking by (some who have lived in Silver Lake for 50 years!) who expressed their appreciation of our collective efforts. That was very rewarding for all of us.”

A dedication ceremony is planned for the summer.
