Echo Park has been improved and is much cleaner than before thanks to a refurbishment of the lake and facilities a few years ago. It is pleasantly landscaped and the lake has beautiful lotus pads. At the time of my visit, there were numerous birds...More

I used to live in Echo Park back when it wasn't as safe and cushy as it is now. Brought my girl here so she can see where I spent my childhood, was a great experience seeing as how it's far cleaner and safer. So...More

I read reviews online about how nice this park was so I ventured all the say from Simi Valley to see it and was disappointed. The park is really small and there is not enough parking. I went early on a Saturday and I couldn't...More

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.

Recently, I visited this park for the annual Lotus Festival. If you're in Los Angeles during the annual Lotus Festival it's worth checking out. The event is held over two days and has food vendors and free activities (face painting, bouncy houses, etc.) for children....More

We visited Echo Park as part of our trip around Los Angeles. A stunning park filled with beautiful flowers, palm trees and a mixture of wildlife. Whilst there was hundreds of people in the park, ample space remained so you could claim your own slice...More

Driving round LA without a satnav (GPS) in the car is wholly recommended. Mayb just factor in some extra time to allow for the occasional mistake. But eventually it pays off you feel as though you know a place even better. This trip I knew...More

Great little park to walk around in, enjoy your lunch, or even take a nap. Much more local-friendly than a lot of other attractions. There is a path around the little lake you can walk (lots of birds and lotuses to see), little boats to...More

I didn't have a car, so maybe I am not the best person to answer. But I don't remember seeing any paid parking lots. Sunset Blvd. is metered, but there seemed to be a good amount of unmetered parking on the street I was at... More
