Wheel Fun rentals will begin renting the paddle boats with their iconic swan bodies on Wednesday, just ahead of the long Memorial Day weekend. The company has been renting the swan boats out at Echo Park Lake since 2018.

The boats are available at $11 per hour for adults 18 years or older, and $6 an hour for children younger than 17. Reservations are required and can be made online at

The paddleboats were anchored in March, when city officials shut down Echo Park Lake to clean up and make repairs.
