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.
