New Silver Lake walking path

Since 2005, Silver Lake residents have been able to enjoy a new and improved path for walking and jogging around the west side of the reservoir. This weekend, Councilmember LaBonge and I joined community members to cut the ribbon on the new path on the reservoir's east side.

This second phase of improvements included repairs to the retaining wall and completion of the walking path between Armstrong Avenue and the dog park. The new path spans approximately 3,300 feet.

The reservoir has always been the jewel of the Silver Lake community and now we are enhancing it with this new walking path. Not only does the path look great, it will help improve safety for walkers and joggers.
