History[ edit ] Postcard view from the s The park, originally named Westlake Park, was built in the s, along with a similar Eastlake Park, whose lake is artificial, in Los Angeles.
Both Westlake and Eastlake as well as Echo Park were built as drinking water reservoirs connected to the city's systems of zanjas small conveyance channels or trenches. When the city abandoned the non-pressurized zanja system for a pressurized pipe system, these smaller, shallow reservoirs located at low points no longer provided much benefit and were converted into parks. North half of park in Wilshire Boulevard formerly ended at the lake, but in a berm was built for it to cross and link up with the existing Orange Street which ran from Alvarado to Figueroa Streets into downtown Los Angeles.

This divided the lake into two halves; the northern one was subsequently drained. During the s the lake featured the rental of electric boats, with the names of comic book animal characters. According to a Los Angeles Times news story fromtwo swans, named Rudie and Susie, hatched their five new cygnets on the island in MacArthur Park Lake, and according to the park superintendent, these were the first swans born in the park in over a decade.
When the lake was drained in andhundreds of handguns and other firearms were found to have been disposed of in the lake. Ina small, local gang in the Westlake and Downtown area, the Burlington Street Locos, got into an argument with a man who was believed to be in a rival gang, called the Crazy Town Locos.
Seeking revenge, members of the Burlington Street Locos went looking for members of the rival gang and thought that a man who looked like the target was him.
Mistakenly, they fired a couple of rounds into his chest, killing him. They put the body in a garbage bag and threw it in the lake. Inmembers of the 18th Street gang saw a member of a rival gang and beat the victim until he was in critical condition. A day later, members of the victim's gang approached members of the 18th Street gang and started firing with semi-automatic pistols.
