Having lived in Los Angeles all my life & I’ve never gone on a Paddle Boat in the Echo Park lake! It was such a fun and relaxing experience sitting in the middle of the lake, surrounded by water & silence. It was so nice to just paddle through the water & watch all the ducks swim by us!
I definitely suggest going some time when the weather is cooler like in the Fall, even though you’d assume you’d want to go during the summer, because the lake is centered in such a way that the sun beams right down on you & it can get hot quick.
We got a bigger boat that can easily fit 5 people but there is also the option of getting a smaller boat to fit just two people! We obviously had to go big lol.
I highly suggest if you’re ever visiting L.A., to visit the Echo Park Lake & hang out in the beautiful scenery & enjoy a fun boat ride!
