This Week in News about Echo Park Lake

From the L.A. Times: The man who saved the Lotus by stealing them

Years ago, an impetuous, and illegal, act by a Reseda horticulturist preserved the lotus species that would later die out in Echo Park Lake.

From TheEastsiderLA: How Safe Will Echo Park Lake Be After It Opens

With less than two weeks to go before Echo Park Lake reopens to the public, the refilled lake and rebuilt park look pristine behind a chain link fence covered with a green screen. But some residents have expressed concern about safety in and around the park once that fence comes down and the lake reopens, attracting throngs of visitors.
 

Echo Park Lake will be officially and finally opening to the public on June 15! Although this is about a month later than we expected, the project is on time and under budget at $45 million (originally $85 million).
