There are a TON of trails, lots of grass and quite a few playgrounds scattered around the park. Definitely worth your time especially as a way to get outside.

We spent an afternoon here waling around the lake. Very peaceful and easy walk. Many birds and other wildlife. A short distance from downtown Dallas.

Enjoy this park. There is a 9 mile path circling the lake offering small piers to sit and daydream, or cycle/walk/run. Picnic areas, Frisbee, and kite flying are other options.

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.
