The aerial photos above from EchoParkLake.org show the dramatic change that took place during the last several months at the lake, which went from a dusty construction site to an urban body of water.  The park is scheduled to officially reopen on Saturday, June 15 at 10 a.m.  after an approximately two-year clean up.  Click here for more before and after photos of the construction.
