    Nice 9 mile lap around the lake, very scenic, and clean. Good place to spend the day & enjoy the weather. There is a place where you can rent kayaks at the corner of Mockingbird & E lawther =O

    Gorgeous lake though it's a little to close to the main drag for my personal taste. They have lots to do including fishing,trails, and boat rentals.

    A pretty lake. Great place for kayaks and sailboats. The paved trail around the lake is quite popular with runners.

    White Rock Lake Park boasts a gorgeous 9.3 mile biking trail... take full advantage of it! If you don’t have a bike already, there are several nearby shops that can rent you a bike for about $35.

    White Rock Lake has 9-plus miles of waterfront trails. Those who enjoy bird watching will find that the lake attracts a wide variety of birds; especially the green parrots at the south end of the lake

    Features separate areas for large and small dogs, and a lake for refreshing fun. Open from 5 a.m. to 11 p.m. year round, and closed for maintenance on 2nd and 4th Mondays.

    Shhhh Don't tell anyone. City has done a great job fixing up the trails and the lake's surroundings. If it weren't for some overzealous tree pruning it would be perfect. Motorists please drive slow.

    Drive down Fisher Road with your date to the edge of the lake, and watch for the ghost of the Lady of the Lake to appear. If you don't see the Lady of the Lake, just make out.

    Watch out for the cormorants roosting at north end of Lake near trail leading to pedestrian bridge. They will bomb you with extreme prejudice!

    The best urban park in Dallas. A great place to walk your dog, ride your bike, or do a little nature photography...

    The bike paths and roads surrounding the lake get really busy on the weekends, filled with weekend warriors and serious cyclists. Amateurs ride at their own risk. Powered by
