This is a high crime area. I would strongly advise against lingering here after 5:00pm and do not visit on weekends. The lake is completely unsuitable for swimming and generally unpleasant. Extremely bad vibe.

Backman Lake is right on the edge of Dallas Love Field. If the wind is blowing from the south you will be assaulted by several Southwest Airlines planes and a few others both landing over you head and the noise from the take-offs. Otherwise this...More
