Echo Park-Los Angeles Real Estate & Homes for Sale in California
Home to over 42,000 residents and known as one of the trendiest neighborhoods in the City of Los Angeles, Echo Park is a unique pedestrian-friendly community that has drawn people from all walks of life such as working-class families and creative types like musicians, writers and artists. Dodger Stadium is located in nearby Elysian Park making it easy for residents to root for their home team or if they're in the mood to spend some time outdoors in a more tranquil setting, Echo Park Lake is the perfect place to lie out and catch some rays, go paddle-boating, or enjoy a picnic.
Echo Park does not have official boundaries or borders. Back in the 1950s the construction of the 2 Freeway and 101 Freeway cut off large sections of the neighborhood on the west and south. Generally speaking, Echo Park's rough boundaries are Benton Way or Waterloo Street, Glendale Blvd. and Allesandro St. to the west; Elysian Park to the east just north of Sunset Blvd.; Riverside Drive to the north; and Beverly Blvd. to the south. Echo Park is also home to four well-known neighborhoods: Angelino Heights, Elysian Heights, Victor Heights, and Historic Filipinotown.
As a hub for creativity, it only makes sense that Echo Park is home to some of the best music venues in the city, such as Spaceland (located in neighboring Silver Lake), The Echo, and Echoplex. Echo Park is located just minutes from the heart of Los Angeles and all its historic and cultural landmarks, districts and entertainment venues.
