Saturday afternoon at the park was a really great experience! The views of the palm trees, water and city are amazing. The mood was also good as people there are very relaxed - walking dogs, having picnics or playing music!

Echo Park and It's Lake is actually a beautiful urban space just outside of downtown LA with great views of the Mountains and the City. The lake is home to tons of birds and there are paddle boats for rent. This once was a shady neighborhood but now there are families and young couples walking and sitting around the lake.... More

Nice settings close to downtown. Bring a picnic and enjoy the lake and downtown views. Some bums are on benches but most people bring their own blanket for the shady grass areas. Small restaurant with boat rentals. Enjoy a little paradise in LA. recommended MeuterMedia

This small park is a real joy. It is located near downtown LA, with a terrific view of the skyline. It surrounds a small lake that features a pretty water feature, paddle boats, lily pads, and lotus flowers. In June-July, if you are lucky, you can see the lotus in bloom, like we did today. They are spectacular! Each year,... More

Echo park is a nice small park with a small lake in it. Many other parks are bigger and more beautiful but what's different in this one is the pedal boats that can be rented in it. I rented three of them and my family had a great one hour of fun and lots of laughs. Love to do it... More
