White Rock Lake in East Dallas

8300 Garland Road
Dallas, TX 75218

This 1,015-acre lake, originally developed as a water source for Dallas, was once a creek where buffalo roamed. Today, you can try the 9-mile hike-and-bike trail or visit the Audubon Society bird-watching area and wetlands site. You can fish for catfish, sunfish and bass (license required). Four-legged friends might appreciate a romp at the dog park with separate areas for big and little canines. From staff reports
