Built around 1930, the Stone Tables — accompanied by a bridge over a nonexistent pond, a bathroom building and a pavillion — are some of the oldest structures at White Rock Lake. The tables,which are off East Lawther Drive and can be seen from Buckner, serve as a popular gathering area, even though they are run down and the old lily pond is long dried up. A $1 million restoration of this area is second on the White Rock Conservancy/ Dallas Parks list of priorities. The project will include refurbishing the historic structures and replenishing the lily pond. To date, no funds have been allocated for this project.

I’ll resume this series Monday with a post about number 3 on the list, rebuilding the Dreyfuss Club.
