ECHO PARK — The new pedal boat operator at Echo Park Lake is preparing for a grand opening with the arrival of a fleet of swan-shaped boats.

The larger version of the swan boats can carry up to five passengers or 1,400 pounds, according to the Wheel Fun Rentals website.

Wonder how the ducks, geese and coots will feel about floating on Swan Lake.

  2. Way more excited about this than I should be.

  3. What are they doing for the grand opening? I can’t find the info anywhere. Usually a grand opening is grand so i hope they give free rides or at least samples of the food since grand is in the title!

  4. Love this.

    Ugh. Hideous. Stop the Disnification of our neighborhood. We have real birds to appreciate.

  6. At 25 bucks a ride!

  7. Girly stuff
