..it was back in the 60's...you remember those days of big hair,
bell bottoms and polyester
The main attraction for us was the spillway. For many years a catwalk connected the top of the dam with the sidewalk that runs along Garland Road but it was removed. The spillway,where our kids once played in the water, is now off-limits. I snapped the following pictures last May...Bob and I still enjoy riding over there.
...began in 2008...expected completion 2010...
On a large bluff at the northern end of the White Rock Lake area is Flag Pole Hill...our kids enjoyed running up and down the 'hill' playing hide and seek among the low, cedar trees. I have taken grandchilden there for kite-flying ....
"This part of White Rock Lake Park is a popular place for parties, picnics, family reunions, and other large gatherings. Oftentimes, public events are held here. One is the annual Earth Day Festival. In the spring of 2003, a rally was held at Flag Pole Hill to protest the then-impending War in Iraq."
The lake is surrounded by luxurious homes..not the least of which is the former home of H.L. Hunt.
...again, thanks to our Mr. Google.
we took our children there when they were small, we've taken our grandchildren there, and now our children take us there.
For the last three Sundays Eddie has taken Bob and I for a drive around the lake...I took these pictures this past Sunday.
