Overview

Overview

Love Park is on the southeastern shore of Bardwell Lake, less than an hour south of the Dallas-Fort Worth area in north-central Texas.

The lake has favorable fish and wildlife habitats, providing plenty of opportunities for fishing and hunting, and great locations for camping, boating and hiking. Deer, armadillo, rabbit, squirrel and a variety of bird species inhabit the area.

Natural Features:

The park is grassy and partially forested with plenty of open space where children can play. The lake's blue water provides a refreshing break from the Texas heat, while bright bluebonnets and other wildflowers surround the lakeshore each spring.

Recreation:

Many local fishermen consider Bardwell Lake one of the best kept secrets in the state. Bass fishermen seldom leave empty-handed. Crappie fishing is moderate, and catfish are usually excellent.

The lake has a marina with fishing piers, two of which are enclosed (a small fee is charged for the use of these facilities), and there are several designated hunting areas around the lake, including those for duck hunting.

Facilities:

Love Park offers one reservable group picnic pavilion that can accommodate up to 200 people. The facility also provides vault toilets, electric hookups, a volleyball court, pedestrian lake access, a trail to the swim area and a four-lane boat ramp.

Nearby Attractions:

Numerous amenities, as well as cultural and historical attractions, lie in the nearby cities of Dallas and Fort Worth.
