Though you can’t get inside of this man-made, decomissioned reservoir, its public perimeter has two dog parks, a basketball court and a playground, along with a 2.2-mile trail around its entirety. It’s also home to Silver Lake Meadow, a soft, grassy knoll overlooking the water where visitors can lounge and picnic (though no pups are allowed here).
While you won’t find any major museums or landmark attractions in Silver Lake, that doesn’t mean there’s a shortage of eclectic culture exciting things to do in the neighborhood. Go shopping along Sunset Junction, take a stair hike between hillside houses or roll out a blanket in front of the Silver Lake Reservoir—there are plenty of worthwhile things to do in Silver Lake.
