On Tuesday readers weighed in on what they want to see on a vacant, triangular lot in Echo Park. Perhaps a little inspiration can be found in Silver Lake, where this coming Saturday residents will dedicate Parkman Triangle Park. Volunteers backed by city grants designed, built and landscaped what was once a triangular patch of concrete and popular dumping ground at the corner of Parkman Avenue and Silver Lake Boulevard. The Parkman Triangle is more of an “urban lounge” than park, said the principal designer, Silver Lake resident John Southern. It’s a place “where walkers hang out for a few minutes, get some shade, and then move on,” according to a press release. The dedication and ribbon cutting ceremony is scheduled to begin at 11 A.M.
