Echo Park

Echo Park is one of the top 10 growing neighborhoods in the U.S. Founded in the 19th century. It’s central attraction is the reservoir in what is the original Echo Park, so named because the workers building it heard their voices echoing off the surrounding hills.

Once the poor man’s Silver Lake, Echo Park is fast joining its wealthier neighbor to the west in competition to house one of the most diverse populations in the country. Its proximity to Downtown L.A. with its undulating hills, spectacular views and still affordable housing make it a place well worth considering making your home.

Such notable films as Chinatown, Echo Park, the original The War of the Worlds, T.V. series such as Gilligan’s Island, and Charmed were shot in Echo Park, and the list of the rich and famous who have lived there and still do is immense. Probably the most famous neighbor is Dodgers Stadium in Elysian Park, but other attractions include Echo Park Lake, with its picnicking and paddle-boating visitors, the annual Lotus Festival, and Cuban Festival celebrating the birth of José Martí the famous Cuban poet of whom there is a statue in the park.

There are many coffee houses, restaurants, art galleries unique to the area, and its relative affordability and eclectic nature make it one of the more diversified areas in the country.
