Chicken Corner has received the following communication from Martin Cox, who lives near Echo Park Lake and has been active in Paddle Boat rescue efforts as well as all things lotus and all things waterfowl:
'tis no rumour,
Boating is finished, last day was the 12th.
The 826LA thing is by special arrangement and not open to the public (except as a fundraising team).
We have an echoing lake sans boats, a boatless boat house, we are without a paddle AGAIN
Private funds anyone?
