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.'
Located on the northwest edge of Ft. Worth and not far from downtown, Lake Worth is a convenient destination. Since there is no full service marina on the reservoir, it is a popular location for sailboat enthusiasts. There is also a large amount of private property along the lake's edge, so make sure you use one of the four public boat and picnic areas when you are there. Fishing for small bass and crappie is popular, and be sure to look for Moss Point and Goat Island, which provide excellent scenery. Admission is free.
Take your boat to the center of this scenic lake, cast your line, put up your feel and just relax! Though Lake Worth is popular amongst locals and tourists alike, Marine Creek Lake is more peaceful and laid-back. It offers unparalleled fishing grounds and picnic areas, as well as superior sailing and skiing facilities. Don't forget to check out the beautiful Marine Creek Lake Park on the banks of the lake.
