Great little city park surrounding excellent lake. Some nice shady areas to sit and relax, eat your lunch, people watch. Many people use the path for jogging. Even though you're surrounded by cars driving by it's pretty peaceful here. Nice views of downtown as well.

Great place for a little R & R! This neighborhood has changed quite a bit for the better! It's close to the LA Dodgers Stadium and Sunset Blvd. Awesome for a nice stroll, a picnic or rent a paddle boat. Just watch where you park! The police are ready to tow cars at any moment!

The whole Echo Park area is in the middle of a transformation to a hip, younger neighborhood full of restaurants and coffee bars and it shows by the people who are in the park. Young couples walking their dogs, sunbathing and reading dominate this beautifully landscaped park. There are paddle rides that you can do, long paths to walk by... More

Georgous park just around the corner from Dodger Stadium, Echo Park offers a respite from traffic. The only downside are the restrooms. I have been in cleaner restrooms in Tijuana.

If you need to step out of the car, stretch and or get some fresh air, this park will be one of those places where you can do that. Located in the Glendale area, the water is clean and the fountain is eye catching. The pond area is surrounded by walking area where you can take laps. Take a close... More

We decided to base ourselves around Echo Park so we had a place to unwind during our manic 2 day sightseeing extravaganza whilst over from London. The park itself is a calm and tranquil spot, ideal to just stop a moment and relax from busy LA life. You will be joined by equally minded people Jogging, picnicing and fishing. Do... More

Took two 11-year-olds here and we were pretty delighted the kids were allowed to be in a boat together without an adult. The water's only about 8' deep. On a nice day, this was a perfect break for us to paddle around the lake a couple of times before lunch. Weekdays are far less crowded than weekends, I hear.

I want to avoid saying the most obvious cliche of any city park by saying it feels like an oasis.... but Echo Park really does feel like that. Visited last May and spent around an hour just walking around the lake, people watching and enjoying the beautiful sunshine. One of the highlights of my trip for sure.
