Beautiful, iconic, bustling...you can't leave LA without walking around this lake.
Outdoor oasis on the east side of Los Angeles. Rent a paddle boat and hang out with the local hipsters.
After the rehabilition finished in 2013, Echo Park Lake has been restored to its former glory. The park's checkered past as everything from the center of the silent film industry to a favored rendevous for drug dealers and buyers will satisfy any history buff. But the walking paths, greenery, floating library, and colorful locals make this park a perfect place for a quick walk or an afternoon picnic.
