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

Beautiful park and lake in Los Angeles (north of downtown) has been recently renovated. You can come for a jog, a walk, a picnic or rent a boat. It´s an oasis in LA!!! There is a fountain in the lake and so many flowers.....such a beautiful park!!!

The echo park lake holds many different lotus plants and when they are blooming makes for a variety of different flowering colors. There is a paved path around the lake you can walk or for those who want to get out on the water there are rental paddleboats available to take out on the lake. Also, makes for a nice... More

Its a beautiful park. Great open areas for picnics, relaxation, exercising or just taking a stroll. The Lotus festival was this weekend and that's always a fun event!

What a great park. You can inhale the scent of nature just north of downtown Los Angeles. The park is hidden in an eclectic neighborhood. There is a hiking trail around the small lake. You can rent a paddleboat for $10 adult, $5 children, for one hour. There is a cute little cafe attached to the rental place.

I loved the renovations on the park. It used to be dirty and smelly, but now it's nicely redone. The famous waterfall is the center of all it. Take a stroll around the lake and have breakfast at the cafe. Try out paddle boating too! There's ample parking around the lake too.
