Earlier this summer, when the Department of Recreation and Parks ran out of funds to keep the Echo Park paddleboat operation afloat, I made sure that we kept them going throughout the summer. We won weekend operations through labor day. The summer's over; the boats are back in the dock. Thanks to all who got out and about under the fountain's spray these past few months.

In the long haul, there will be boats on Echo Park Lake as long as there's water to paddle them on. The Department of Recreation and Parks has placed on them on hiatus for the off-season, but we're going to work with them to find a plan that floats, and we'll bring them back soon. We're not going to take no for an answer.
