What started out as a natural arroyo filled with water from a stream is now a notable expansive park and famous neighborhood. Formerly known as Elendale, Echo Park consists of 26 acres of greenery and a beautiful lake. Based on a design by Joseph Henry Tomlinson, the park is beautifully conceptualized. Tours of the park are available, which includes the other neighborhood landmarks like the historic Baxter Steps and the Echo Park boathouse. Festivals and other cultural activities too are held in this neighborhood and park with great furor and enthusiasm.

Echo park is an example of the diversity present in California. I grew up in Echo Park, but it is now a much different place. Gentrification has taken its toll on Echo Park. As white people move in, the prices of housing has skyrocketted. Many of the original inhabitants who worked had to remake Echo Park, from the problems it faced in the 80's, have been forced to leave. Still, Echo Park has great food, places to chill, drink, dance, and hang out with the family.
I wouldn't call it a tourist attraction, since I lived there, but it's such a beautiful park & area, especially for a somewhat low-income, urban locale.
Not much to do at the park, but lots of cool interesting shops on Sunset & very cheap places to eat.
