Whereas the lake usually is in the park, Beverly Hills boasts a "second story" park above a lake. Few persons realize that the park is built over a reservoir and is supported by great arches of concrete. Photo shows four girls strolling through the park of two and a half acres. Beneath a two-foot layer of earth on which they walk, is the roof of the reservoir. Left to right: Margery Cayton; Bunte Ball; Sally Smith and Frances Easton. The roof is supported on three hinged arches. The reservoir, with a capacity of 8,000,000 gallons, cost $122,000. Photo dated: February 28, 1933.
