I always wanted to check out this park, and was glad I did. The trail was longer than I expected, but that’s no problem. I’m an aviation fan, so I love that the the aircraft fly so close as they are landing or departing Love...More

This is a high crime area. I would strongly advise against lingering here after 5:00pm and do not visit on weekends. The lake is completely unsuitable for swimming and generally unpleasant. Extremely bad vibe.

My family stopped off here after dinner and before going back to our Love Field-area hotel. The park itself is really lovely. There's a trail circling a beautiful lake that's perfect for walking and jogging. The park is adjacent to the runways of Love Field,...More

A couple of nice playgrounds for kids and plenty of parking on the northside of the lake. Saturday morning walk on a Sunny winter day saw lots of boats out 'rowing' and lots of kids and families on the playgrounds. You get the occasional Jet...More

Backman Lake is right on the edge of Dallas Love Field. If the wind is blowing from the south you will be assaulted by several Southwest Airlines planes and a few others both landing over you head and the noise from the take-offs. Otherwise this...More
