Echo Park Lake went through a major overhaul two years ago that has made great improvements. This is a nice way to enjoy a mellow day. The walk around the lake is close to a mile. The Angelus Temple is across the street.

We were so impressed on the many Lotus Plants along the edge of the Lake. They are well protected from any kind of intruders because the nets were in-place. The many varieties of flowers make one really wonder and appreciate the real beauty of the nature. Some lotus grew so tall that some flowers were so big that really amazed... More

The area could be a real gem, but unfortunately after 15 years of "on the way up" it still hasn't made it that far. Great architecture, some great little restaurants, but still very shady.

Me and my Friend are addicted to fishing. Living in the heart of La their aren't to many places to go fishing within walking distance of our houses. Me and my friend and we established a pattern tossing Ika's through the lake. It is really cool when one of us caught a fish. People from the other side of the... More

Echo Park and Silverlake are both overrated. Parking is bad, and the area has been let go. Houses look decrepit and so do many of the eateries and other establishments. "Trendy" people have tried to make it a trendy neighborhood and I commend them on their efforts to revitalize the area, but it has come up really short. On a... More

It takes about a half hour to walk around the entire circumference of the lake. You can usually find parking along the residential side streets. There is... More
