Nothing to do here but stare at a lake. Great if you are renting the building because it is cheap but huge - not so pretty though

A beautiful well-kept Park. The lake and the Dallas Skyline in the background is just beautiful. You can drive through a lot of it to see the views. It's well-kept and well landscaped. Even on a cloudy day it was just beautiful.

If you have a lot of friends that are willing to help with a wedding, Winfrey point is OK. They have enough chairs and tables for at least 150 people. Nice big space for eating and dancing. Be advised you have to supply tablecloths, flowers, etc. Great field outside for a wedding overlooking the lake with Dallas in the background.... More

Beware of this place!!!!! When I first booked the place everything was nice and stress free but the day of my wedding there was a "GUY" in charge of that place for the night just kept on picking at little things (for example : the stage power outlets don't have the capacity to sustain a DJ/lighting so a CERTIFIED ELECTION...

I hate that my friend's wedding was a bust due to this ghetto place! Poor thing will never be able to recover from the shame.

You enter the white lake part , park your car and keep on walking and you will reach this place, I did not see anything special, nice place to hang out or if you are running or skating.

Great view of Dallas. Also nearly the best from the only lake in Dallas-White Rock Lake. This is actually where I was married&it was perfect but this isn't a spot that is an attraction to visit while here. It is more of a venue to book for an event. If thag is what you are looking for this is ideal.

Close to the Dallas Arboretum off Garland Road in East Dallas, Winfrey Point is right on White Rock Lake and offers lovely grassy picnic spots right outside the Rec. center. The Highland Scottish Dance Teams perform here in the spring and it is a sight to behold.
