Oak Lane Reservoir

View Larger Map

So you are driving back or to the Temple Gallery in Tyler's new van (if you are lucky) and at intersection at 65th Avenue and 5th Street someone says,
"remember when there were cardboard cut outs of dogs in there? why are there life jackets? can you swim in that? when will they fill the pool? So you think there is water under that cover? does it collect rain? "
and on and on until some other subject comes up. So in order to shed some light on the matter I looked up what it is, because, personally Id rather know something than have the same conversation once a week. It is the Oak Lane Reservoir.

What is a reservoir? A reservoir is a lake-like area where water is kept until it is needed. They come in all shapes and sizes. Reservoirs are owned by a water company or authority. There really is not much information about the Oak Lane Reservoir except for its longitude and latitude, which doesn't help much. Personally, I would like to know how deep it is.

Maybe I should interview the person in charge of the place?
