Beautifying Echo Park

May 8, 2008

Echo Park Richman (Echo) Park is the proud new owner of a magnolia tree.

The tree – currently blooming – was planted on April 11, close to the basketball court. “I think people appreciate it,” said the park’s keeper Brian Markey, adding that it’s already received a few compliments from local residents.

In the 1980s and 1990s, Echo Park used to be a popular hangout for drug addicts. And to an extent it still is: Markey often finds himself disposing of used syringes. But the Parks Department and community groups have worked hard to clean up the park and encourage people to use it. Upcoming events in Echo Park include a jazz festival on July 17 (6 p.m. to 8 p.m.) and Drug Free and Proud to Be Day on Aug. 16 (9 a.m. to 6 p.m.). Both are run by Mount Hope Housing Company.
