We're heartened by a big update on the $65 million refurbishment of Echo Park Lake, via the Above the Lake blog. First off, we have water again! There's not much, but it's there. We heard back in September that a partial refill would be happening around this time, so lotuses and other flora can be planted--the fill should be done by May and the reopening should happen sometime in 2013. New sidewalks are also now being constructed; "these will be porous to keep them drier than the old cement." [Above the Lake]
