“Burger's Lake”
Reviewed 8 June 2005

We had a wonderful family day at Burger's Lake. What a blast from the past. It so reminded us of the days spent at the local beach club. Unlike the pools in our own neighborhood, the rules are taken seriously and actually enforced. There is an air of respect that has been created by the watchful eye of the management staff. The efforts to maintain a good, clean atmosphere are very apparent at Burger's Lake. The concessions offered good, fresh food and the prices were reasonable. For our children, the kiddie diving board was the big hit. It is very low to the water and parents can stand close to help the really little ones. The sand was clean and plentiful. We went on a pretty crowded day, yet there was still plenty of sand space and opportunity to make new friends. There could be a few more potty stalls (we had to stand in line for quite some time), and there was a shortage of toilet paper (we had to borrow from the neighboring men's bathroom), but all in all it was a refreshingly relaxing day.

“The Best place to take your kids!!!”
Reviewed 25 June 2003

My best friend and I took our 4 young children (ages 2, 4, 6, 10) to Burger's Lake. It was absolutely wonderful! The entire place was sparkling clean and cheerful (even the bathrooms and dressing rooms.) The "lake" is round in shape and small enough that you can see your kids wherever they may wander. Likewise, small children can safely play anywhere around the outer part of the lake, while the inner part is clearly roped off and marked as the deeper water. There are large diving boards (in the deep part), a large slide, a trapeze, a fountain, and a kiddie diving board. Also, there is a large area of sand in which to build sand castles that is partially shaded (the kids buried me in the sand.) By the way, there are plenty of huge trees for shade all the way around the lake should you need it as we did. We brought our own lunches and chose a picnic table near the sand under the shade. We had 3 children with us who couldn't swim, so I rented life jackets for them at $2 per jacket for the entire day. We ended up not using them much because there is so much shallow water that it was easy to keep the kids safe. Even the teenagers there visiting were friendly and respectful and there is no alcohol allowed. A man's voice on the speaker is occasionally heard telling a visitor, "Please walk, young man. No running." It was clear that in addition the the life guards, there are others watching out for kids' safety. The owner or management obviously makes this place what it is. The kids thought this place was paradise and so did we. I had been to Burger's back in the 80's as a teen, but honestly don't remember it being this great. We spent 6 hours there and the kids were STILL begging to stay. We intend to go back soon and bring food for grilling. The only warning I might give is to secure your bread when leaving the tables. The birds there have an eye for a loaf of Mrs. Baird's....and they don't mind the plastic. We ended up "intentionally" feeding them before we left. This place comes with my HIGHEST recommendation for anyone with children. Oh, I forgot to mention the cost of admission is only $10 and kids 6 and under are FREE! I'm not sure if they have season passes but have promised the kids I will call to find out. It truly is a blast and your kids will absolutely love it. The sign at the exit says something like, "If you enjoyed your visit, tell everyone. If you disliked it, tell management." I will be telling everyone.Lisa Perdue Fort Worth, Texas
