Did you know that there’s a gorgeous place on White Rock Lake with viewfinders and a whole lot of history?
Even though I’ve lived in Dallas for three years now, I’m constantly discovering places that I’d never heard of before. The Bath House Cultural Center is one such place.
I didn’t realize it was there before and wanted to share with you all in case you’re in the same boat as me.
The history of the center is pretty fascinating. In 1930 the center was created as a place where people could change, rent swim suits, etc. when going for a dip in White Rock Lake.
But swimming in the lake was banned in 1953 and the Bath House stayed vacant for over 20 years. It was then transformed into a cultural center in 1981.
Now it is used for multiple purposes- as a museum, a gallery, and a theater. It houses artwork and pieces of history.
Go and see it for yourself! It’s located off of Buckner at 521 E. Lawther Drive.
Don’t limit yourself to just the Bath House Culture Center! From picnics to bike rides, there is a ton to do at White Rock Lake.
Some of my favorite things are wandering around with Harrison and taking in the view.
On a side note, how fun is this field over by the docks?
It definitely reminds me of the African savana!
