Ivanhoe Walking Path Opens; Ryu Calls Reservoirs “The source of our respite”

(Left to right, top to bottom) CD 4 Councilmember David Ryu, SLNC Board Members and Co-chairs of the Reservoirs Committee Janis Purins and Terry Jackson remind the community of the importance of the reservoirs to Silver Lake – and how much has been accomplished over the years. Adults and kids were all smiles at the ribbon cutting, which took place on Saturday, January 26.

>Residents, fans of the reservoirs, city officials and community groups turned out to celebrate the opening of the new Ivanhoe Walkway, which provides a publicly-accessible walking path near the Ivanhoe Reservoir. The path is located on the 2300 block of West Silver Lake Drive and will be open to the public from dawn to dusk. Because the pathway borders the historic Blue Heron nesting area and other wildlife habitats, no dogs will be allowed. Along with Councilmember David Ryu and the SLNC, LADWP Chief Operating Officer Martin Adams, State Assemblymember Laura Friedman, 43rd District, Commissioner Cynthia McClain-Hill, Board of Water and Power Commissioners and representatives from community organizations spoke at the event.
