This small lake has a nice fountains spraying water high up into the air. There are swan paddle boats to rent for reasonable prices. It takes less than 30 minutes to circumnavigate the lake by foot.

this park is lovely with many varieties of water plants. The paddleboats are shaped like swans and easily maneuvered. It is a smooth, well run operation

I’ve been here three times. The swan boats are great and even better now that they have a roof on them to get some shelter from sun. If you go at 9:30 weekdays you basically have the lake to yourself. You get one hour at...More

Mid July provides more than heat in LA. The lotuses are in bloom on Echo Park lake. Turtles and ducks and swan paddle boats make this spot a great photo opportunity with DTLA skyline in the background.
