I've been here a lot of times. It's always a good place to bike, walk or just see Dallas skyline and sunset. But this time, we had a special mission. We tried to spot fireflies (lightning bugs) along/near the white rock lake. And we actually FOUND them, plenty of them! The exact location is along Goforth Rd (between E Northwest Hwy and W Lawther Dr). It was very easy to spot those flashing creatures after sunset. That's the most entertaining experience I've had here.

Visit White Rock Lake Park to have a great time outdoors. Family, self, or couples all appreciate the outdoor activities. Great for running/walking, there is a fantastic bike trail and you can also kayak or just have a picnic.

This Lake is a cycling mecca. At anytime you can see hundreds of cyclists riding around the lake and surrounding neighborhoods along with joggers and people casually walking with kids. There's a small art gallery and theater with exhibits near the boat house. Sail boats and crewing (rowing) boats. The Arboretum is next door.

We enjoyed riding around the bike path; it took about an hour at a leisurely pace. Lots of nice views around the lake.

9 mile loop around the lake, full of people jogging, biking, walking, families playing and picnicking, a dog park , marinas, kayak rentals, people on the lake in their canoes, SUP ( stand up paddel boards ) and sailboats. Small urban lake, no motor boats.
