Have you ever dreamed of swimming in the Silver Lake Reservoir?

Walking or running along the fence, you can't help but think...what if we could jump in?

What if chain link and concrete were replaced by a sandy beach and swim lanes?

The entire Silver Lake Reservoir, including Silver Lake's northern, smaller reservoir (the Ivanhoe Reservoir) was taken offline and removed from the public water supply because of water quality regulations by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA).  LA DWP placed new pipes for the drinking water currently stored in the reservoir. 

Why not take this opportunity to improve our community and expand the ways we can use the reservoir?  We can not only walk and run around a beautiful body of water, but transform it into a functional space for community recreation.  We can create a new public gathering place to bring our LA communities together to support fun and fitness.

Neighbors have advocated for us to rethink the future of the reservoir, and now the City of LA is conducting a master planning process. This is our opportunity to advocate for swimming and active recreation at the Reservoir!

The image above is one concept of what a revitalized reservoir could look like - "The Silver Lake Plunge."

Join Swim Silver Lake and be part of the transformation of our neighborhood and of Los Angeles.
