The lake hide north of 101 Freeway, five minutes drive from Los Angeles Downtown Civic Center, located northwest direction of the City Hall. The lake filled with beautiful lotus and water lily,fully bloomed in summer. A walkway around the lake, some shade area next to the walkway. You may want to get some food from Central Market or Chinatown on... More

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.

Echo Park is a neighborhood just northeast of downtown L.A., but there is an actual Echo Park, and this is a review of the park itself. The park is a block south of Sunset Blvd.; drive or take the #2 or #4 bus from downtown to Echo Park Ave. The park's main feature is a very large lake, with jets... More

If you're in the downtown area and have an hour or so to spare, Echo Park is a worth a visit but don't go out of your way. The surrounding area is not great but the park has been refurbished in the past year or so and it's nice to take a walk around but is more lake than park.... More
