After lunch at a nearby deli, I wanted to take a walk around the MacArthur Park lake in a misguided attempt to indulge pangs of LA nostalgia. Sadly, what should be maintained as a neighborhood showpiece stands as a shameful example of city neglect. You'll...More

Well it may not be melting in the dark anymore, but it has been neglected for many years, even though it's in the middle of the city. Was once full of drug dealers and a bit sinister. Could be gorgeous and important.

It is really sad that MacArthur Park is such a dump, but it is. Stay away. It has a lake which has been cleaned. There are little boats that you can rent for the small lake. You can bring lunch and picnic under a tree....More

Grabbed food from a food truck at the end of Ciclavia at MacArthur Park. the City of LA cleaned up Echo Park and made it a much nicer place , this place should be next in line. Wouldn't have stopped here if not for Ciclavia.
