Echo Park Lake

Echo Park Lake

After two years of renovation and $45 million dollars, Echo Park Lake re-opened this weekend to a great turn out.  They did a beautiful job cleaning the park and making it appealing to the whole community.  They added a much needed playground for the kids. There are gorgeous lotus flowers throughout the lake that are in full bloom. And they were supposed to have restored the boathouse and have paddle boat rentals, but that’s closed until further notice. I can’t wait for that to open!

The opening ceremony started at 10 am and by 11am the park had hipsters claiming their picnic area. Kids were kicking around a soccer ball, and neighbors happily walked their dogs around the lake.  It was wonderful to see such excitement and the community taking ownership of the park on day one.
