“Neat place”
Reviewed 4 July 2014

What a great park. You can inhale the scent of nature just north of downtown Los Angeles. The park is hidden in an eclectic neighborhood. There is a hiking trail around the small lake. You can rent a paddleboat for $10 adult, $5 children, for one hour. There is a cute little cafe attached to the rental place.

“Newly rennovated”
Reviewed 21 May 2014

I loved the renovations on the park. It used to be dirty and smelly, but now it's nicely redone. The famous waterfall is the center of all it. Take a stroll around the lake and have breakfast at the cafe. Try out paddle boating too! There's ample parking around the lake too.

“Nice walk if you are in the area”
Reviewed 4 August 2013 via mobile

Echo Park Lake went through a major overhaul two years ago that has made great improvements. This is a nice way to enjoy a mellow day. The walk around the lake is close to a mile. The Angelus Temple is across the street.

“Walking around the Park”
Reviewed 8 July 2013

We were so impressed on the many Lotus Plants along the edge of the Lake. They are well protected from any kind of intruders because the nets were in-place. The many varieties of flowers make one really wonder and appreciate the real beauty of the nature. Some lotus grew so tall that some flowers were so big that really amazed me because it is my 1st time to see such beautiful plants.

“Trendy neighborhood to visit”
Reviewed 1 April 2013

Echo Park in Los Angeles. this is a very fast growing neighborhood with trendy shops and of course right next to the Dodger stadium. Echo Park is a community with business that help one another and is worth to exploring. It is full of small restaurants, clothing stores, the famous land mark the lake, Dodger stadium, etc.. Echo Park is also famous for new upcoming trendy retail shops, bars/cafes and it is also well know for their Lotus festival at the beginning of summer at the park by the lake. it gets filled with vendors, food, clothing and lots more. just recent I visited a cute clothing shop " Colibri on Sunset" women clothes and accessories are adorable and affordable. also, Lot 1 café on the same block both of these are amazing. happy exploring.
