With over 43,000 residents, Echo Park is a rather densely populated neighborhood of Central Los Angeles and a great place for those with families looking to settle in. Its nine schools also give residents plenty of educational options. Echo Park was not always geared toward accommodating the family lifestyle, however. Prior to the popularity of Hollywood, Echo Park was firstly known as the heart of filmmaking on the West Coast. Today, one of the city’s main attractions is Echo Park Lake, which can be used recreationally and also as part of the local watershed. Its close location to the 101, the 2, and the 5 freeways additionally makes Echo Park an easy place to navigate. If you want to experience the predecessor of Hollywood in all of its visual beauty and family attractions, Echo Park is calling your name.
