Document Description
The proposed Project would redesign 116 acres of the 127-acre Silver Lake Reservoir Complex with community park amenities. The proposed Project would consist of a series of spaces (park zones) stitched together by a 2.5-mile, tree-lined promenade. These zones include: Ivanhoe Overlook; Eucalyptus Grove; Knoll; Meadow; East and West Narrows; South Valley; and Habitat Islands. The proposed Project would feature two flexible lawns with shade trees, a picnic grove and ornamental gardens with an informal play area, and an environmental education center along the east edge of Silver Lake Reservoir at the base of the Knoll. At the intersection between the lawns and water, stepped seating terraces would navigate to wetland terraces interwoven with small footpaths. Two existing areas of woodland, the Knoll and Eucalyptus Grove would be restored to increase their upland habitat value. A new ecosystem that reintroduces coastal scrub and wetland habitat to the Silver Lake Reservoir Complex in the form of habitat islands and terraces would extend from the shoreline embankments and within the reservoir bodies.
