$50,000 Goal

The City of Dallas cannot fund all the improvements the park needs, they need private support, which is where the White Rock Lake Conservancy comes in. The Conservancy works in partnership with the Park Department to pinpoint, develop and fundraise for needed improvements at White Rock Lake. Since it began in 2008 the Conservancy has donated funds to help renovate the dog park, bicycles for Dallas Police patrolling the lake (twice), new and improved signage around the lake and most recently the renovation of the stone tables picnic area, lily pond and restroom. The area has 13 restored stone picnic tables, new lighting and grills, improved drainage, and a new ADA path to the updated restroom. 

The final phase of the Stone Tables area is an updated playground. The current playground equipment is well past its lifespan of 15 years! The Conservancy will design and fund the new playground in the same area. With your help, this can be completed in 2024.

These improvements in White Rock Lake Park make the area easier and safer for the 2 million+ people that enjoy the park each year. Please donate to help us continue to make White Rock Lake Park a place we all can visit and enjoy. All donations of over $50 through this site will receive bonus funds from Communities Foundation of TX and sponsors. So your donation will go further through the North Texas Giving Day site! 


The mission of the Conservancy is to enhance the identity, beauty, and safety of White Rock Lake Park in partnership with Dallas Park and Recreation and the surrounding community. The Conservancy supports implementation of the White Rock Lake Master Plan through major fundraising initiatives and development expertise to meet significant park needs.


The final phase of the Stone Tables area is an updated playground. With your donations, the Conservancy will design and fund the new playground in the same area. We need to raise $700,000 to install drainage, a shade structure and/or trees and new playground equipment. If we raise the money now, this project can be completed in 2024.

“Blessed is he who plants trees under whose shade he will never sit.”

Equity Statement

We believe that people of all races, ethnicities, ages, genders, sexual orientations, religions, health and abilities have the right to enjoy the beauty and natural spaces that White Rock Lake Park offers.

A great park is one where all feel welcome, safe, and have access to nature. We are committed to delivering that for all park visitors. We continue to work with neighboring organizations and the City of Dallas so all residents can share the Park's outdoor spaces safely.
