Paved walk/bike path through park constructed around city reservoir. Multiple parking lots around the pathway. Relatively level terrain. White Rock Lake is a water reservoir constructed circa 1900 to supply water to the growing Dallas area. The surrounding land has been turned into a picturesque city park and is, in turn, surrounded by neighborhoods. A paved multi-use pathway circumnavigates the lake with several (apparently older and unmaintained) walking pathways branching off at various points. Interconnects with other pathways.

Great views of the lake. Bridges and boardwalks on the trail, also water fountains. Really enjoyed the run after a work day visiting Dallas.
