Viewfinder: North Park Lakefest
Festival marks re-opening of North Park lake.
A boatload of fun activities marked the reopening of North Park Lake on Saturday.
Festivities included bike rides led by Pittsburgh Trail Advocacy Group and a 5K Fun Run & Walk around the lake, giving folks an opportunity to admire the impoundment as it was meant to look when it was built on Pine Creek in 1936.
Restoration involved the removal of 310,000 cubic yards of sediment that had accumulated over the years.
