White Rock Lake Adventure

White Rock Lake

We were excited to have a leisure Saturday and decided to take our dogs up to White Rock Lake. It is absolutely beautiful and there’s so much to do! We usually go for the dog park, which is under construction right now, but don’t let that stop you. Our dogs equally loved the trails, playing in the Fall leaves and adventuring along the banks of the lake.

The park itself is stunning and I was able to snap this picture to the right of the White Rock Lake Boat Club. Can you imagine bringing a picnic basket packed full of delicious treats and relaxing here?! Yes, please!

You also have the option to partake in an array of water activities. On warmer days we like to go to White Rock Paddle Co. and rent kayaks. If you’re feeling adventurous you can even rent a paddle board! They’re closed for the season now and will reopen in March 2015 and it makes for a great outdoor outing here in Dallas.

On Saturday, we went around 3 pm and stayed for the sunset, which was absolutely incredible. It was wonderful seeing the sail boats coming back in as the sun was setting. If you’re into photography you can definitely take some beautiful shots here.

There are many other things to do at the park. You can spend the day biking, walking, and/or running on the nine mile trail around the lake. You can row across the beautiful waters or have a relaxing day of fishing and picnicking.

White Rock Lake boasts amazing Downtown Dallas skyline views and nature, plus it’s free! So, the next time you are wanting to getaway from it all and spend a day out in nature you should adventure out to White Rock Lake.

Where do you go to relax and enjoy the outdoors here in Dallas?

    Great blog post! An update for you.. The current kayak/SUP concessionaire at White Rock Lake is Dallas Paddle Company (www.DallasPaddle.com). Fun Fact: A portion of all Dallas Paddle Co proceeds benefit the park and fund youth rowing scholarships at Dallas United Crew. It would be great if you would help spread the word by updating this post!
