After a two-year makeover, the Eastside's historic Echo Park Lake has finally become a family-friendly destination worthy of its Downtown skyline backdrop amid the lotus flower bloom and the spray of the fountains. The lake has been around since 1860—it was once used as a drinking water reservoir, and later as a recreational park with canoes, fishing and a floating lotus garden. Today, you can walk the track around the lake or push your way through it in a pedal boat; either way, make sure to stop at the revived boathouse (and its breakfast pit stop Square One) and the Lady of the Lake statue.
