This isn't on the tourist map but really nice sport to visit if you're into films as this water park/pond/lake (or whatever you want to call it), has featured in just about every LA based lake waterfront scene. Nice for a walk around and a nice little coffee shop. Free parking too.

Saturday afternoon at the park was a really great experience! The views of the palm trees, water and city are amazing. The mood was also good as people there are very relaxed - walking dogs, having picnics or playing music!

Echo Park and It's Lake is actually a beautiful urban space just outside of downtown LA with great views of the Mountains and the City. The lake is home to tons of birds and there are paddle boats for rent. This once was a shady neighborhood but now there are families and young couples walking and sitting around the lake.... More

Nice settings close to downtown. Bring a picnic and enjoy the lake and downtown views. Some bums are on benches but most people bring their own blanket for the shady grass areas. Small restaurant with boat rentals. Enjoy a little paradise in LA. recommended MeuterMedia
