Wrap around: Bitter Lake Reservior Open Space

March 21st, 2011 by Tommy Unger Leave a reply »

North of Bitter Lake, you can find the Bitter Lake Reservoir and the Bitter Lake Reservoir Open Space. I don’t really know the purpose of the Bitter Lake Reservoir is, but it must be important because it has a big, black chain link fence all the way around it. So, as far as the park goes, I’d say it’s best used part of a jog in the Bitter Lake area. It also has a decent area to hang out around the green/blue sculpture thing.

There is indeed some open space here, but not much else to offer. You can see a nice playground in the apartment complex across the street, so you’re welcome to try to sneak in over there. I’d also recommend heading down to the Bitter Lake Playfield and Playground if you’re looking for a bit more to do.

Honestly, I don’t think we’ll ever make it back the Bitter Lake Reservoir Open Space. If this is what our future parks will look like, I’m not looking forward to things. With concrete, grass and a few winding sidewalks, there’s not much that shows what the Pacific Northwest has to offer. We can only hope that the vegetation takes over a bit and gives the place some character.
