I was just about to pass up your column with the great photos headlined "Summer Splashdown" (June 23), until I noticed it was about my beloved Belvedere Park in East L.A., where my father taught me to swim. I grew up at Belvedere. The toy loan, Pop Warner cheerleading, folklorico dancing for eight years with Mrs. Aguilar, the hot summer night we performed to the music of "The King and I" on that very pool deck some 35 years ago! Gee, I'm actually getting all teary-eyed. What memories!

A gun buyback event held over the weekend in East Los Angeles yielded 152 weapons, the Los Angeles County Sheriff's Department said this week. The cache of weapons exchanged for gift cards to Target or Ralphs included several assault rifles as well as handguns, shotguns and standard riles, the department said. The event was held Saturday at Belvedere Park, one of several such sessions that encourage residents to turn in guns, no questions asked, in exchange for gift cards or in some cases cash.

Drive down 3rd Street through East Los Angeles, and you can't help but notice Belvedere Park, with its tranquil lake and sloping grass field. Less eye-catching, however, is the row of county buildings on Fetterly Avenue just outside the southwestern edge of the park. Some buildings have no signs, and confused visitors often circle the block, unsure where to go or where they can park.

The lawmakers and the speech-givers who descended on East Los Angeles on Saturday said the impending construction of the Eastside Gold Line and the opening of a refurbished Belvedere Park Lake represented the beginning of a renaissance and the hard-fought fulfillment of a promise for the community. Dean Mariscal, "born in East L.A., like the song," saw all the hoopla a bit more pragmatically: He just wants to go fishing on the weekends and someday take the train to work.

Times photo editor Aurelio Jose Barrera started documenting life on Cesar E. Chavez Avenue in 2003. The seven-mile street named for the storied Mexican American labor leader begins where Sunset Boulevard ends, near Grand Avenue in downtown Los Angeles. From there it heads east, over rail yards and beneath freeways, past White Memorial Medical Center and Belvedere Park, finally ending at East Los Angeles College in Monterey Park.
