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.

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.
