Hearing the helicopters flying low over our house now for a couple of hours, we decided to check out what was going on at Elysian Park. The police at Academy (near Morton) told us it was the LA Low Riders motorcycle club, and they making sure the motorcycles weren’t migrating toward Echo Park Blvd. This is the first year I’ve noticed the yearly picnic taking place here, but I certainly did notice that parking is tight on Scott Avenue and surrounding streets.

EchoParkTV has posted a video covering the event, check it out here

LA Eastsider blog has pointed out in a blog post yesterday that the bikers had no permit at Elysian Park. This is a concern, as at around 7:00 pm last night, the park was COMPLETELY trashed.

In addition to that, parking on Scott street was extremely difficult. The Dodgers didn’t seem to have a need for placing “Local Access Only” signs in addition to city parking enforcement on the street corners, despite the over 50,000 paid customers at last night’s game.
