SILVER LAKEThe construction of a new water pipeline means that joggers and walkers – as well as motorists – have to adjust to detours next to the Silver Lake and Ivanhoe reservoirs. Dan Gershon snapped photos this week of the temporary new walking path, which he notes is shaded by towering trees. “This tree-lined path is already being used by joggers and dog walkers,” he said.

The first phase of pipeline project, which began in March, is expected to take 8 to 10 months to complete.

  1. Ironically, that’s the original path for pedestrians, which was fenced off ages ago. Nice shade for a change.

    • Interesting, I always wondered why they didn’t just route the jogging path through there. For all the hype about Silver Lake being “beautiful”, you’re really just jogging in between an arterial highway and a ratty barb wire fence much of the time. Hopefully all these little side paths and fenced off spaces are opened permanently once the reservoir goes offline.

      Rowena too… beautiful local park that’s inexplicable fenced off from the community.
