    The Bath House has always held special memories for me, as a life-long lover of White Rock Lake, as I grew up here and returned upon retirement.  When I was a child, I squeezed between ill-fitting gates to play within its abandoned structure.  When I was a young boy, its veranda provided lessons in photographic perspective as well as fanning the flames of young love at sundown.

    The Friends are incredible volunteers who preserve a jewel of our area selflessly and too often without thanks. They represent the best of East Dallas.

    A Personal Story and Why I am one of the Friends of the BathHouse

    White Rock Lake is part of my earliest memories. I was born in Dallas and always lived not far from the lake. I fished and played there as a child, went to school parties at the old rock picnic shelter, twirled on the merry-go-round and slid down the slides. I played spin the bottle there as a young teen-ager and roasted hot dogs and watched the stars & moon shine on the waters.

  • Hope this becomes a regular event [in reference to the “Color Outside the Lines” event]. We had a wonderful time.

    Where is my favorite place to show and sell my art? The Bath House Cultural Center of course. The dedicated professional staff organizes/advertises the show. The Volunteers of the Friends of the Bath House support the artists throughout the entire show. I get to meet wonderful artists & see/buy their work. And our browsers and buyers are the best!
