$50,000 for Echo Park!

Echo Park thanks you for your support

I reported last month on the announcement that Nike would donate $50,000 for improvements to Echo Park. They presented the (outsize novelty) check in a ceremony by the lake and then the whole crowd stuck around to clean up the play area around the lake, too. Thanks to Nike for the contribution (which does not portend the installation of a giant swoosh) and thanks to Mark Mariscal and General Manager Jon Kirk Mukri from the Department of Recreation and Parks as well.
