Cool off on the Lake this Summer!

By July 17, 2019

Who doesn’t enjoy spending their weekend on the lake?

There’s certain phrases that cause general excitement in any living room from “let’s take the boat out” to “who wants to go fishing?” For National Park & Recreation month, Tarrant Regional Water District would like to encourage you to employ these phrases on your way to one of the wonderful lakes we oversee in this county. There are plenty of activities that take place in or near the water that can be enjoyed at the following lakes I will identify for you.

The Richland-Chambers Lake has the longest shoreline of any of the lakes in this region. Located in Streetman, TX, this lake boasts a variety of marine life that make the lake perfect for the local angler. Striped bass, catfish, and crappie are the most frequently caught fish on the lake and make this lake ideal for anyone who wants to get out and enjoy some peaceful fishing.

Another lake in the region to give a try is the Cedar Creek Lake in Trinidad, TX. With a surface area of 32,873 acres at conservation, Cedar Creek could play host to one of your weekend getaways to enjoy Park & Recreation Month. Cedar Creek is known to be DFW’s favorite getaway, so you can use this month as justification to drive down to Trinidad and see what all the buzz is about.

If you’re looking for something a bit closer to Fort Worth, just head on over to Eagle Mountain Lake. Stay close to home while enjoying the beach by visiting Eagle Mountain’s Twin Points Park! The park gives you a taste of the beach without having to travel out of the state, while also providing amenities that will make your Park & Recreation Month a month to remember.

Finally, the fourth lake associated with TRWD that would love to entertain your Park & Recreation Month activities is Lake Bridgeport. As you could guess, it sits peacefully north of Fort Worth in Bridgeport waiting to be peacefully enjoyed with 12,000 acres of surface area. Lake Bridgeport prides itself on providing peace and tranquility for its guests as they fish, swim, or just want to hang out and let loose.

Needless to say, there are plenty of lakes supported by Tarrant Regional Water District that would love to meet your acquaintance for Park & Recreation Month. Don’t delay, get on the lake today!
