The clean up and rebuilding of Echo Park Lake is 99% complete but the park remains officially off limits to the public. But with its newly refilled lake and freshly planted lawns and trees, it has been hard for many to wait until the temporary fence around the park comes down. That was the case on on Sunday when Echo Park resident Darrell Kunitomi took a stroll and a closer look at the rebuilt lake and park.
Kunitomi, an avid fly-fisherman who has visited the park since he was a boy, shared some photos and observations of the lake. Said Kunitomi via emal:
Looks pretty good but am taken aback by how extensive the [new wetlands] are – major shoreline is lost to access by kids/fishers. Walkway is very nice.
Here are some more photos and observations provided by Kunitomi.
