Photo: Diane Edwardson, March 24, 2011. Five months ago, we were ankle deep in vernal pools and mudwatch on the Red Car Property. Today, the same location looks a lot drier. (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.
