Silver Lake Reservoir, Los Angeles Overview

The Silver Lake Reservoir is a reservoir complex located in the Silver Lake Community of Los Angeles, California. It comprises two concrete-lined basins, the Ivanhoe reservoir and the Silver Lake, divided by a spillway. The reservoir is considered to be the heart of water supply for the city of LA to over 600,000 homes in downtown and South LA, owned and operated by the Los Angeles Department of Water and Power. However, due to environmental damages, Silver Lake remains offline permanently with only Ivanhoe currently online.

The reservoir has become the hub of the neighbourhood with its plenty of recreational activities available. 

The Silver Lake Meadow, located on the east side of the lake, is a 3-acre passive park apart from which, there’s the Dog Park on the south, a nursery school on the north and a recreation centre on the south, again, which has plenty of activities to be involved in. 

The outer periphery of the reservoir also offers a great track of 2.5 miles for jogging and taking a stroll around the reservoir with plenty of trails spread throughout with great views. Parking isn’t a concern since there’s plenty of free street parking available outside the entrance.
