The purpose of the reservoir at the time was to provide power to the Woolen Mill at 6th and Figueroa and also to serve local residents. These days Echo Park Lake is merely a recreation site with paddle boats for rent, a walking trail around the perimeter, trees for shade and tables and benches for picnicing and relaxing. It is home to the annual Lotus festival and serves as a back drop for many community events throughout the year. Initially, the area we now know as the park was a natural arroyo. The Los Angeles Canal and Reservoir Company dammed the arroyo in 1868 to create the reservoir.
