Parkman Triangle Grand Opening

This past Saturday, I attended the opening of Silver Lake’s newest “pocket park.” For years, Parkman Triangle was nothing but an empty patch of asphalt between Silver Lake Boulvard and Parkman Avenue, attracting trash and illegal parking. But thanks to grants from the Office of Beautification, the Silver Lake Neighborhood Council and the hard work of many volunteers the corner is now filled with drought resistant plants, providing shade and open space for the community. Projects like the Parkman Triangle are vitally important as they not only help make our city a greener place to live but demonstrate what can be accomplished when government works together with its citizens.
