Echo Park Homes for Sale
Echo Park Location
Echo Park is flanked by Benton Way to the West, Riverside Drive to the North, Elysian Park to the east, and Beverly Boulevard to the south. Echo Park actually refers to an area that includes other neighborhoods: Angelino Heights, Colton Hill, Edendale, Elysian Heights, Temple-Beaudry and Sunset Heights.
Echo Park Beginnings
In the late 1800s, neighboring Echo Park attracted homebuyers who took advantage of street cars that took residents to downtown Los Angeles. Originally called Edindale before the creation of the Echo Park Lake, the area was home to the film industry before studios moved to Hollywood before World War I.
Echo Park was a middle class neighborhood yet it attracted a creative, independent-minded set of residents attracted by its reasonable prices. Poetry and literature readings have been an Echo Park tradition since the early 1920s. Today, Echo Park homes include a significant Latino immigrant population.
Echo Park Recreation & Amenities
Echo Park hosts the annual Lotus Festival in the fall. The park’s lake was at one time said to contain the largest planting of lotuses outside Asia. The park also features a Cuban festival commemorating the birthday of Cuban poet Jose Marti. A statute of the poet stands in the park.
Unique shops and restaurants include Barragan’s Mexican restaurant, the Echo Curio Curiosity Shop and Art Gallery and the Echo Park Film Center. The film center includes classes and frequently offers film festivals. Restaurants include Barragan’s, a historic location with Mexican food that draws diners from around the Los Angeles, as well as places like The Park, which speaks to the increasing gentrification of the neighborhood with dishes such as cornmeal pancakes with seared shrimp and chipotle butter.
Echo Park Schools
The Los Angeles Unified School District serves Echo Park homes with the Logan Street Elementary School, Mayberry Elementary School, Thomas Starr King Middle School and Belmont High School. Downtown Magnets School offers focuses in fashion, business and electronics.} ?>
