White Rock Lake Park, Dallas

4.6
#6 of 20 in Parks in Dallas
Formed by a collection of farms that had been dammed in the past, White Rock Lake Park became an esteemed running, hiking, fishing, and bird watching site. Covering 507 hectares (1,254 acres) of land, and with the maximum depth of 5.5 m (18 ft), the lake is used exclusively for fishing and sailing; swimming and motorboats were banned in the 1950s. Check out the 15 km (9.3 mi) trail, and look for fishing piers over the lake's clear waters. The park is home to an array of birds, squirrels, beavers, and coyotes, as well as, reportedly, a ghost from the 1930s.
