“A Series of Small City Parks”
Reviewed 10 October 2013

We spent an afternoon roaming around and exploring Lake Worth. The city of Fort Worth has a series of small parks around the lake, some of them with just picnic area and playgrounds, and some of them with sand beaches. They seem to be under-utilized. At least this meant it wasn’t crowded when we were there. The largest park that we visited was Casino Beach, and there were only a few families swimming there even though it was a warm Saturday afternoon.

Casino Beach has an interesting history. It used to be a major entertainment area with a boardwalk, dance hall, roller coaster, etc. Looking at it now, it’s hard to believe. Now there is mostly empty land with nothing to indicate what it once was. It would be nice if there was some kind of interpretive sign or historic marker indicating that there had been more to it than a large grassy field with a strip of beach and boat ramp.

The parks all appeared to be clean and well maintained, and would be perfect for a family outing or small gathering of friends.

“memories of casino beach”
Reviewed 16 October 2012

At one time this was the entertainment area. Now you can have a picnic or just stop and enjoy the view. North of the 199 bridge can get difficult during certain times of the day due to the traffic.

“A Great Place to watch Fireworks on the 4th of July”
Reviewed 1 May 2012

Easy to find and parking is every where especially if you are visiting family or friends. Be prepared to avoid mosquitos in the late evenings in the Summer.

“Nothing special”
Reviewed 4 April 2012

Just another small lake. There are other lakes in the DFW area that are larger and offer a variety of activities.
