Going to the beach seems like a summer must, but sometimes beaches in Texas can be kind of a far drive that becomes too much of an effort. Thankfully, Grand Prairie's Lynn Creek Park has great sandy beaches that are closer than ever. The beach is on the northwest corner of the Joe Pool Lake and has sand volleyball courts, concession stands, and a swimming area that is truly refreshing.
The park allows you to have summer fun on the beach but if sand in your shoes isn't your thing, there is also a grassy area where guests are free to use one of their 100 picnic tables. Some of the tables have grills and you can bring your own snacks. If you don't feel like bringing your own food, there are concession stand where you can get refreshing treats.
Boat ramps are available for those who are bringing their own and a playground is never far for those are looking to have a little extra fun. There are restrooms and changing rooms so you won't have to get back in your car with wet clothes. On the opposite end of the beach, there is a restaurant that is great to top off your day in the sun.
The beach is open every day from 6 a.m. to 10 p.m. from March to September and is closed for the rest of the year which means the spot is only great for summer. Be sure to spot on by sometime soon while it's still open and available to enjoy!
Lynn Creek Park is free for Grand Prairie residents as long as their group is under six people and for those who are not residents, the fee is $15.
The park is located at 5610 Lake Ridge Pkwy. Grand Prairie, Texas 75052. For more information on the park, you can visit their website here.
