Summer is here folks and its hotter than ever! This week isn’t looking to cool off anytime soon either.  So, if you are looking for things to do to cool off on the road here are a couple ideas for you to check out in the Fort Worth area.

Burgers Lake

Yes, that is the name of the actual lake.  Located at 1200 Meandering Road in Fort Worth, Burger’s Lake is a 30 acre park with 1 acre of spring fed lake, perfect for swimming and cooling off on a hot day.  The lake is formed through natural springs and filtered and chlorinated so it’s safe for visitors to swim in.  There are 2 soft sandy beaches, 6 diving boards including a small one for young children, a 20 foot waterslide, and a 25 foot trapeze that extends out over the lake.  You can also rent inner tubes so you can kick back and relax on the lake.

Burger’s Lake also has designated picnic areas with grills at over half so you can enjoy grilling out while you are there. Or you can grab a snack at their concession stand.   They also have sand and grass volleyball courts for those interested in non-water activities.  For more information on Burgers Lake, visit
