    About Lake Arlington
    Tarrant County, Texas

    Lake Arlington is a 1,939-acre lake in the suburban Arlington area between Fort Worth and Dallas.

    The lake is 12 minutes away from the Texas Health Arlington Memorial Hospital and 30 minutes away from the Dallas-Fort Worth International Airport.

    Around the Lake

    With three lakeside parks, each with public boat launches, there are plenty of places to get boats in the water. Of course, the City of Arlington requires a boat usage permit.

    Anglers can catch largemouth bass, channel catfish, white bass, and crappie.

    The Lake Arlington Paddling Trail runs almost 11 miles following the 20-mile shoreline of the lake.

    Arlington Lake is a golfer’s paradise. There are two courses on the northeast shore, the Lake Arlington Golf Course and the Shady Valley Country Club. Both are challenging full 18-hole courses.

    The Dallas-Fort Worth Area

    Arlington Lake is only 20 minutes away from Six Flag over Texas, the original Six Flags theme park. It is also the home of the world’s first log flume, El Aserradero, the first freefall ride, the Texas Cliffhanger, and the tallest and fastest roller coaster in Texas, Titan.

    A reasonable distance from Dallas, Arlington Lake residents can also travel a short distance to AT&T Stadium to watch the Dallas Cowboys or Globe Light Field see the Texas Rangers.

    Other ways for lake homeowners to entertain themselves in the area include Ripley’s Believe-It-Or-Not museum and the wax museum, the Metropolitan Classical Ballet, the Symphony Arlington, and the Arlington Music Hall.

    Only about 20 minutes away is the highly-rated Istanbul Grill, which provides high-quality, healthy, and authentic Turkish cuisine.

    There are many grocery stores, shopping areas, and public schools in the area which makes living in Arlington convenient.
