The Cleveland Cascade was developed in the 1920s and water ran from Cleveland St. down to Lake Merritt.
In the 1950s it fell into disrepair and the water was turned off. Within a few years the cascade was filled in with plants and citizens forgot about the water feature. In 2004 neighbors joined together to restore the cascade to its former glory. Currently the plantings are kept trimmed and the stairs up to the streets above are maintained. Hopefully, one day the water will run again. For more "C" photos around the world, visitABC Wednesday.
