I went there to do some rollerblading and biking. The rollerblading was tough due to some of the trails (bumpy asphalt), but the biking was great. The trail is well marked so you know which path you are on

A man-made lake in the heart of Dallas, White Rock Lake provides a refuge from busy city life. Take a Saturday or Sunday morning stroll to walk your dogs, ride your bike, or go on a run on the trails available.

This takes a while to get to, but great place to go for a run. You get out of the City, and hang out w/ nature!

Took my family to the part for a morning while visiting Dallas. The playground that we went to was OK and there was not a ton of landscaping where we were.

Growing up in Dallas I remember tales of "the lady of the lake", swam when there was a public area and sailed my boat from one end to the other. Take a drive around the lake and stop at the many park areas to relax...More

I've never seen fishing equipment for rent out there and didn't really have much luck the one time I took my kids fishing there but that was probably user error. Other people fish out there and have had success.
