Great for a bike ride, kayak, picnic, walk or run!
Being on the lake is wonderful! There is so much to do here outdoors during the daytime and so much to do in close proximity at night. There is some sort of run or bike event nearly every weekend. Rent kayaks, run, jog, bike the lake. Enjoy sailing or the many parks nearby. The Dallas Arboretum and Botanical Garden also sits on the lake. It's an amazing natural resource in the heart of Dallas!
White Rock Lake is a 1,015 acre city lake located approximately 5 miles northeast of downtown Dallas. White Rock is one of the most heavily used parks in the Dallas Park system and is the location of many special events and runs. White Rock Lake offers a variety of active and passive activity options and is one of the best places to experience natural areas and wildlife in an urban setting
A beautiful park in the middle of the city. Nice place for a walk or bike ride.
I've spent many hours here. This is a great place to run, walk, ride your bike, have a picnic... it's great. There's a 9 mile loop so you can get some serious mileage if that's your thing. On the weekend you will find two men set up in lawn chairs with a sign that says "Free Advice." They take it seriously... check it out!
Yes, Dallas does have a lake and it is a beautiful destination to visit throughout the year. They have a hiking and bike trail, plus a dog park. Kayaks can be rented and taken out on the lake. There are multiple events like races and runs for fundraisers here throughout the year. If you’re looking to fish, take a nice walk, or relax in beautiful parks with a nice lake view, be sure to head to White Rock Lake when visiting Dallas.
