History of The White Rock Lake Foundation
From those grassroots origins, the White Rock Lake Foundation has adopted goals that include the development of a Comprehensive Landscape Architectural Concept Plan and a schedule for all restoration, preservation, and development efforts at White Rock Lake. These goals have been adopted by the Dallas Park and Recreation Department.
Fundraising continues to be a critical component of the White Rock Lake Foundation’s responsibilities. Private funds have paid for essentials at White Rock Lake Park such as picnic tables, bicycle racks, benches, trash receptacles, and additional landscaping.
The White Rock Lake Foundation Projects
- Project Update: The Foundation presented the Dallas Park and Recreation Department with a check for $151,250 to begin restoration on Winfrey Point. This will be a three year project and cost estimates exceed $500,000. The Dallas Park and Recreation Department matched these initial funds through monies from the 2017 bond package. The remaining $200,000+ will be raised by The White Rock Lake Foundation. Numerous improvements will be accomplished through this effort bringing this long time facility at White Rock to the premier condition that will preserve it for years to come.
Project Update:Six shade structures were added to the Winfrey Point Ball Fields. This was a collaborative effort of the foundation and Dallas Classic Baseball. We added six structures total at three ball fields.
Project Update:Directional Signage added throughout the Lake in a collaborative effort with The Dallas Running Club.
