After a few weeks of intermittent closures, the dusty and sun-baked Silver Lake Dog Park reopened this past Saturday for the dedication of some new shade canopies. According to Eastsider LA, the green fabric structures were designed to be supported by two posts instead of four, which should reduce the risk of dogs and people running into them. (Yes, dogs had been crashing into them). The project's been in the works for about two years and is already providing some relief for playful pups, including the one dog intently listening to Councilmember Mitch O'Farrell's speech at the event.
