Fodor's Expert Review Echo Park Lake

Echo Park Body Of Water/Waterfall
Free
If this charming little park and its lake of swan boats looks a little familiar to you, it’s most likely because you’ve seen it in one L.A.-shot movie or another (Chinatown, for instance). After a major overhaul, the park has blossomed into a beautiful urban landscape, set against the backdrop of the Downtown skyline. Weekends are always bustling, as are mornings when joggers and early risers take laps around the lake. There’s a tiny breakfast-slash-lunch spot that serves healthy nosh and good coffee.
