Small, suburban lake surrounded by a three-mile trail: great for walking and running.

The lake itself is pretty but much of the trail around the lake lacks vegetation and, particularly in the summer, lacks shade. Part of the trail butts up to heavily travelled roads. In the park itself there is sufficient shade and picnic facilities. The noise...More

I stopped by Bachman Lake park only because Bachman is my surname. This little park sits adjacent to Love Field Airport. There are plenty of picnic tables, and a full walking/jogging path around the lake. That's about it. There's nothing special about the park.

First of all--it's a man-made lake. So, there's not really a lot of "natural" beauty here. Sure, there are some ducks and swans (and late at night, some pretty scary nutria), but other than that, it's pretty much your standard grass and trees park. Major...More

This is located just north of Love Field so it is a great place to watch the planses land and take off. Lots of picnic areas but it is also located on Northwest Highway which is a very busy street. Need to watch the kiddos....More

Nice trees, lake and flowers during the summer time. Joggers and lots of airplane traffic which flies just overhead.
