White Rock Lake Park, Dallas

(4.7/5 based on 500+ reviews on the web)
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. Plan to see White Rock Lake Park and other attractions that appeal to you using our Dallas itinerary planner.

  • Once the city water supply now just a park on a lake. Dog park at the north end - a sailing club rent kayaks but probably not a place I would choose to swim. After a heavy rain the spilllway is quite ...  more »

  • Great place to cycle! I enjoy riding at night. There seems to be plenty of people there even at night which adds some feeling of security.
  • Its really close to downtown dallas, i love the views from the park, plus you can stretch your legs on one of their walking trails.
  • If the weather is good, you can expect to see a lot of people enjoying the open spaces around the lake.
  • Wow.. beautiful lake side walk. Picnic destination
  • Not a bad place to walk or bike. There are plenty of trails and people to feel safe to walk alone (at least when we went on the weekend). Only downside is I did not see hardly any restrooms (if any) along the 2.5-3 miles of trail/road we walked on. Great spot to catch Pokémon (not many stops though)
