Monday we asked here--and on our Facebook page--what's your New Year's wish for Echo Park Lake.
We heard back from a number of you on Facebook, and we share those responses here:
Lisa Roberts Palombi For the lotuses to grow back!
Tony Vazquez For the sexy girls to be running around the lake! Lol
Anne Schwarz I second the lotuses. Wouldn't that be wonderful.
Victoria Rhea Harding I just want the lake back so all the kids can enjoy it again
Heidy Frøya Rhode Marroquin My wish is, that they open it asap so I can start to take my runs inside the park. I don't like to run how they have it now too dangerous!
Miguel Siqueiros Taking my dog Lola for evening walks around the park again.
Stephanie Luty Widmer The whole time I've been an EP resident, I've been staring at construction across from my place. I just can't wait to see it open!!
Vickie Mynes Lotus festival with the real thing!!!!
Caroline Pinky Luat Young Lotus Fest with lotus in bloom, paddleboats with fountain operating beautifully, no garbage or junk sale on Sunday, turtles , water birds and wildlife abounding- especially the great blue Heron family on the island!
Thanks everyone. Happy New Year. And now for the rest of you:
What's your New Year's wish for Echo Park Lake or maybe just Echo Park and Silver Lake in general?
