Water and Plants in the Lake

While construction on Echo Park Lake is still going on,
one small portion now has been planted with some of the
wetlands that will be in different areas of the lake.
Finally after more than a year and a half, it's starting to look
more like we remember it.

Taix Square

Meet Me at Taix Square
The City Council today approved a motion to honor Taix French Restaurant by naming the intersection in front of the Echo Park restaurant “Taix Square.”  The ceremonial signs will be installed at Sunset Boulevard and Park Avenue as the family-owned Taix restaurant celebrates its 85th anniversary, 50 of them in Echo Park (the original restaurant opened in downtown).   No word yet if the city will also be honoring other long-time Echo Park restaurants by naming intersections Brite Spot Plaza, Pizza Buona Place and Barragans Crossroads.
