Photo: Diane Edwardson, August 19, 2009. LAFD Brush Clearance Inspector Wieser red tagged the Red Car Property on August 6. The owner still has not cleared brush from the slopes. (Click on photo to enlarge.)
The Corralitas Red Car Property was a private right-of-way through Silver Lake (Los Angeles) for the Pacific Electric interurban streetcar. The “Big Red Cars” ran until 1955 when the Glendale Line was decommissioned for freeway construction. For almost 40 years, a series of developers tried and failed to develop the Corralitas Red Car Property.
It's not a park, it just looks like one.
