What started out as a natural arroyo filled with water from a stream is now a notable expansive park and famous neighborhood. Formely known as Elendale, Echo park consists of 26 acres of greenery and a beautiful lake too. Based on a design by Joseph Henry Tomlinson, the park is beautifully conceptualized. Tours of the 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.
I'm sooooo glad that Echo Park has cleanned up since I grew up there in the 80's and 90's. Now as an adult, I return to Echo Park and am filled with great pride and nostalgia for a childhood long gone but always remembered. Thank you whom ever put this picture up on the internet. I LOVE LA!!!
