“Live a few blocks from White Rock Lake”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 14, 2012

This is a jewel in our city. White Rock Lake is a multi-purpose leisure site for joggers, bikers, fishermen, weekend sailors, and families looking for a place to have a picnic.

“Great Outdoor Fun close to Downtown Dallas”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 13, 2012

The park has several different playground areas and picnic places. My grandchildren always enjoy playing there. It is also a good place to enjoy biking and walking. As at any public outdoor facility, use caution and wear bug repellant

“A great place”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 4, 2012

White Rock lake is just beautiful. Hike and bike trails abound.
A new addition to the White Rock Lake is you can rent canoes or kayaks to have fun on the water.

“Wonderful place to take the kids!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 26, 2012

Huge park pretty much surrounding the lake, clean and well kept. Lots of playgrounds as well as activity areas for pretty much any other sport. Picnic areas, with pavilions and grills, etc.
