Lake Where Naya Rivera Drowned Reopens for First Time Since Death
SoCal lake where Naya rivera was found dead after the drowning is again open to the public, but its tragedy is impacting operations there.
The Piru Lake learned from TMZ reopened on Thursday, 43 days after the “Glee” star went out for a day of boating and swimming with her son. The artificial reservoir had been banned since Naya’s disappearance. After authorities recovered his body, the lake remained closed as the COVID-19 pandemic intensified in LA County.

Now that the public can return, there are restrictions. For starters, swimming is absolutely prohibited. Lake officials say it’s due to COVID-19, but locals tell us they believe the ban is really about Naya’s drowning. When she disappeared, many residents were critical as there had been 8 previous drownings since 1994.
As we reported … over 12,000 people signed a petition demanding more effective warnings swimmers on debris below the water surface.
As for boating on the lake … it’s back in full swing, with picnicking, hiking and fishing
Then there is this … the pontoon that Naya rented the night she disappeared has been taken out of the fleet and it has been stored.
Remember … the locals had reason to be concerned. Naya’s drowning is the ninth death at Lake Piru since 1994.
