Nine vintage images of Lake Cliff Park


Lake Cliff Park marks its 100th anniversary as a Dallas City Park this year, and a big celebration is planned for Sept. 20.

The lake itself was built in 1890 as part of a country club, and the park was privately held until 1914.

In the early 1900s, it was the largest cultural/amusement park in Texas with rides, a casino, dance pavilions, three theaters, a restaurant, a pool and a bathhouse.
