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.

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
