Generations of Fort Worth families have sought relief from the hot Texas sun by diving into this cold, clear, spring-fed private lake located in northwest Fort Worth. Once a goldfish hatchery, Burger's Lake is now a one-acre, family-oriented "swimming hole" featuring tall trees, picnic tables, barbecue grills, concession stands, and tennis and volleyball courts, along with occasional sand-castle building contests and related events meant to entertain visitors. The lack of high-tech water slides or wave pools is made up for by large floating tubes, a fountain, and a trapeze for 'swinging' and 'dropping.'
Take your boat to the center of this scenic lake, cast your line, put up your feel and just relax!
