Every year, FIT, FESTIVAL OF INDEPENDENT THEATERS, takes place over 2 weeks. A $60 pass can be purchased for unlimited attendance, or pay as you go, for $10/show. These are small groups without a theater of their own. The acting is superb, and the old bath house view and amenities are definitely worth a visit. Sunset is lovely over White... More

This is an early bath house (swimming area and changing rooms) at White Rock Lake that has been converted into a cultural center. It contains a very small theater and usually has art on display. If you are near the lake it is probably worth a short visit, but I don't think it's worth a special trip just to see... More

I was in the park anyways so I took a stroll over to see this beautiful old bath house building. Unfortunate was closed today. It looks like it is a decent size and probably would be helpful too learn about this history in this area

I'm unsure exactly how old this facility is and all the history behind the Bathhouse, but I had a chance recently to see it up close and personal. It was a very nice experience. My wife and I took the chance of going inside one day just to see if we could look around. It was like walking in a... More

Great place to visit while having a picnic by White Rock Lake. We saw a specific exhibit and was very pleased at the overall experience. Very laid back, casual attire acceptable. We definitely will go back.

Went here to see some performances that are part of the Festival of Independent Theatres (which usually begins around mid July). Other events are also held here throughout the year. This is a really nice venue for theater-going. Since the Bath House sits in the park and overlooks White Rock Lake, it's great during intermission to go out on the... More

We were shocked -- and very pleased -- to find and enjoy this remarkable theater. The production shows that this place is run by theater professionals. Dallas is very fortunate to have this level of expertise in a regional theater.

Hidden in the scenics just on the outskirts of Hwy 12. The Bath house cultural center has been a standing historic reference promoting Cultural heritage and arts for ages. Originally started as a community recreational spot the Bath house has well developed into promoting a lot of festival themes and a podium of exhibit for local artists. The Center is... More

The Bath house has a wide variety of attractions from the Mexican Dia de los Muertos (our Halloween) which is an annual event of art associated with this culture day to new productions of new plays and readings.

Six of us enjoyed watching "Shiloh Rules" play at the Bath House Cultural Center. This is a lovely place on the shores of White Rock Lake that offers a small theatre and local productions at very reasonable prices. The history of the bath house along with the small art museum are bonuses.
