Create an itinerary including White Rock Lake Park
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.

  • White Rock lake is my home and my safe space. I'm there just about every day either running or on the bike.

  • Quaint lake with greenspace in the Dallas area. Near the botanical gardens. Nice biking and walking trails. Look for the white pelicans and the waterfall over the spillway.

  • Classic. They agree repaving roads, making repairs, etc.
  • Found a huge mussel, and then used it for bait!
