The Silver Lake meadow, about two acres of new parkland adjacent to the Silver Lake reservoirs, was expected to be completed in time for the holidays. But, as anyone who has walked by the park site in recent weeks knows, the meadow looks more like muddy marshland thanks to heavy rains. A spokeswoman for the Department of Public Works said that crews are ready to resume working on the meadow, located between the Silver Lake Reservoir and West Silver Lake Boulevard, when skies clear and the water finishes draining. But she did not know when the meadow would be ready. However, she noted that part of the project also includes the building of a drainage system that could help prevent future flooding of the meadow area.
