Is Echo Park a nice park where you can fish and bring your dog and let him roam free? I heard in the past, Echo Park has nice lily flowers that would blossom in the spring. I never been to Echo Park, so I wouldn't know?

Echo park had a negative rep for years and years but that is slowly changing. Many artists live in the area and the park is safe, even at night. It has probably one of the most beautiful views of downtown and its always filled with people since its very relaxing.

Red face Hmmmmm

The park is too small to let your dog roam around free. It might attack the the joggers running around.

I say go to Griffith park.

The lotus flowers have NOT been blooming for a couple of years now. The City is working on a solution, so I hear. And I recommend the dogpark in Silverlake (Silverlake Blvd and Duane, I think).

True. Something is not right in that lake:

Festival's lotus position awkward - Los Angeles Times

It’s not the Lotus Festival that’s gone missing this weekend.
The dragon boats are still speeding across Echo Park Lake, the drums are beating and the scent of chicken satay and papaya salad wafts through the crowds.
It’s the lotuses that are gone, dead after gracing the lake with their broad leaves and delicate flowers for decades.
