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.'
We came awhile back and they had some offroad dirt bike racing thingy and tons of people were set up to camp out. I had a blast. Me and my g/f went and everyone was friendly and full of "spirits" We met lots of really cool people and will definately go back. I think a drive in theatre would be kick ass! if the owner decides to move forward with it. I see his post was a while back but this would be a good idea. With it being after hours. It would be a good place for people to kick back a little while and hang out a little longer.
Came here for my best friends son's birthday and we all agreed it was the best time almost ever, plenty of shade, reasonable snack bar where you could actually afford to eat, grounds were neat, employees friendly. Plan to be there again. Loved it
I attended a double family childs party 7-16-11. I was impressed that great attention was taken for announcing missing children and rules announced. Concession was decently priced. It was impressive a employee went to each picnic site to ask if everyone well and accounted for
. However in my case it was hard for me to step in and out of water I have one artficial knee and a bad arm.. If there were any rails to assist entering and exit I was not aware of it. I would of enjoyed myself much more not being depended on help in and out. I know it a lake theme but a couple rails wouldnt distract that much.
Also I saw a man step in and suddenly slip forward and fall on his back just barely missing cracking his head on the cement edging. This was just to the 25 ft some left behind the double diving board. It was not on the colored tile square area but next to it. I dont know why it was slick. It had a sllope downward into water.
There also seems to be a bee problem. We were unable to finish our snowcones due to the pesky bees getting in the cup. So perhaps end of season you could get a extermnator to locate them for removal.
Your reduced fair for larger crowd was a good deal for our group.
First time visiting and had a great time! Go early because the cars line up to get in, but there's plenty of room to park, and tons of trees and picnic tables so you can enjoy the shade. There are separate bathrooms and changing rooms, and unfortunately they don't offer rental lockers. We stashed a bag with our towels, sunblock and camera on a bench near the water and no one bothered it.
There were plenty of lifeguards, including 2 on surfboards paddling through the deep middle section, so if anyone got in trouble out there they would get helped pretty quickly. The areas that are deep are clearly defined with floating ropes so you won't wander into them by mistake. Everyone there was well behaved and it was nice to see families having fun together; no one got pushy or rude and I don't think I heard anyone swear, which is pretty amazing for being in a crowd. It was not that crowded when we got there around 9:30, but closer to 1 it was getting pretty packed. We did notice a playground and a small sprayground on the premises, not far from the main lake. There's 2 different islands of diving boards, one with tall boards and one with medium height. There's also 3 slides, and a trapeze that you swing out over the water and let go of. Everything is well marked, so you're not going to accidentally swim out and have someone land on you. There are fountains and sprayers out in the water too, and I saw a tetherball in the water's edge as well. There is a section roped off for the little kids that has a little bitty slide and a diving board right above the water, which is really cute.
If you expect it to look like a swimming pool, then don't, because it is a lake, but it was nice and clean other than a few cottonwood leaves or sticks floating here and there. If you grew up swimming in southern lakes then the only difference is the water is clearer. Nice simple snack bar that was not very expensive, and the burgers aren't half bad! Will def go again and bring friends with kiddos!
I loved how when you enter they check for alcohol, I would hate for drunken idiots to be around so many families. The price is decent for a family to swim all day way cheaper than water parks. We took our own food and drinks and saved more by doing so. I can't say how their snack bar is since we didn't buy there. I think it's great they allow you to bring in your own food. Water is nothing like swimming in a lake it is sooo much better, and there are slides or diving for all ages. I am terrified of public restrooms however, Burger's lake restrooms are kept super clean. Within a 4 hr time frame they were cleaned at least 2x and cleaned well, they don't stink or have trash littering the floor they even mop. Lifeguards are great about keeping eye on everything. I must say Burgers Lake is great and I can't wait to go back hopefully in the next 2 weeks, and each summer here on out!! Thanks owners of Burger lake for keeping such a great summer attraction so clean, safe, and at a reasonable price!!
They also do safety checks to make sure everyone is accounted for...2 tumbs up for safety!!
Went there the 3rd July 2010 this was a very clean park. Took some dogs threw on the grill which was brand new rock grills very nice. The restrooms were busy however they were extremely clean. THANK YOU for the clean bathrooms. It's rare to find a place that cares I can't say enough good things my kids wanna go every week I'll have to look into a season pass. Keep up the great work.
