Ride a Swan Boat And Eat Inside a Boathouse With Your Kids At Echo Park Lake!

Updated: Aug 31


Rated one of the best LA activities, Echo Park pedal boats are a great way to enjoy the outdoors with your family! Your kids will love the new swan boats that just arrived at the Echo Park this spring. These stylish swans feature the option of a shade covering for sunny days, and are easy to maneuver and are a great fun for families.


You can choose from two different size: small or large. The small swan boat can accommodate two adults and two children under 10 years old, and the large swan boat can hold up to five people.

The cost for renting a swan boat is $11 per hour for adults and $6 per hour for children (ages 2-17). Boat rentals are available seven days a week from 9 am to sunset. The boathouse is located on the eastern side of Echo Park Lake, adjacent to Beacon at 751 Echo Park Ave, Los Angeles, CA 90026.


You can also purchase an Annual Pass and save 50% for an entire year! The card pays for itself in one visit. For just a small fee, plus your full priced rental fee, you become an annual pass member which gives you 50% off all future rentals for one year. Plus, they'll throw in an extra half an hour onto your rental the day you become a member.


Before or after your boat ride, stop by Beacon Cafe and enjoy delicious and healthy breakfast or lunch in this beautiful restaurant built in the lake’s boathouse by the lake. Kids menu offers Grilled Gouda Sandwich, Avocado Toast, Fruit Bowl, and Scramble Eggs. You can also order Mac & Cheese and Fries from the side dish menu if you have a picky eater.


The lake also features a great view of the LA skyline, and has a picnic area if you choose to take your own food and picnic by the lake.
