I've been spending more time on the east side of LA recently, and didn't know that Echo Park had a lake! Just south of Sunset where all the cool bars and restaurants are in Echo Park, is Echo Park Lake. It's really beautiful and seems to have been recently renovated. There used to be an issue with unhoused individuals taking over the space, but they've done something to avoid that from happening anymore. It makes for a peaceful and beautiful experience. You can rent boats and take them around the lake, and even take out some fun swan pedal boats. There are beautiful lily pads throughout, and you can walk around the lake on a footpath trail. Many people were having picnics and enjoying the view.
Who knew that Echo Park actually had a lake? I didn't!
Hey all! I'm into the outdoors, checking out cool restaurants, and finding the best views.
