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... read 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

The park is beautiful for a run or walk. You can see lotus flowers, red slider turtles and fish. There is a cafe where you can purchase food and use their free wifi. Lots or walkers, runners and people with their dogs.

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

I like to walk around the lake in the early evening and then walk up to Sunset for a cup of tea at Masa cafe or get a healthy meal at Lasson's and take it to the park. It is always relaxing and there's lots of good people watching here.

This was the first thing we did the first day we stayed in Los Angeles. It is absolutely a beautiful park and very relaxing. We walked around the park and there are plenty of runners, pets, children, etc. and it is still peaceful. It has a lake, it has beautiful palms, and birds and ducks. Nature at it's best.

Very beautiful park however the water was kinda dirty and green slime but what do you expect for a central LA park. Very nice friendly family orientation. Big water spray/fountain which cools you down when the wind blows in your direction which is nice and refreshing. PS Great to visit, just try not to come here at night is close... More

This is a nice respite. It's a tree-lined lake with fountains and lots of ducks. It's a nice place to take a walk or relax on a bench. There are little paddle boats you can rent too. It's a cool, peaceful place to take a break.
