There aren’t many places where you can race a commercial jet, but Bachman Lake is one of them. This hike and bike trail runs for about 3 miles in the flight path of Dallas Love Field airport. It’s paved, which can be a blessing and a curse, and offers a steady stream of 16 exercise stations along the course. With ducks and geese populating the park, as well as a playground, Bachman Lake is equally suited to a hardcore workout as it is a family stroll.
Dallas Rowing Club is located on the southern edge of Bachman Lake on Lakeshore Drive.
