Los Angeles is not a city made for pedestrians. When I moved here I thought to myself people are lazy. They drive around and get stuck in traffic. They suck. Little Parisian fought hard and walked walked walked everywhere I could. And honestly I have walked through pretty dull and boring suburban parts of the city: mini malls and gas... More

I go to Echo Park at least once a week for a walk. I grew up in this neighborhood years ago when it wasn't so great. It's beautiful and safe now! The lake is tranquil and the abundance of wild life will amaze you. It's become a very 'in' spot for those of us in the know. I would highly... More

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!

Every year, around July the lotus flower is bloosom, it is a good time to visit and it does not cost money.

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
