Hey Bachman Lakers - The Bond Election is here!

Updated: May 7

by Joe Carreón

NOTE: The election on May 4, 2024 resulted in approval of the Bond measures on the ballot. This post was written during the early voting period.

Voting for the 2024 City of Dallas Bond has begun. Since our inception, Friends of Bachman Lake has been advocating for greater accessibility and investment in Bachman Lake Park. We have our chance again to get things done.

The 2024 City of Dallas Bond includes $4.75M of direct investment in Bachman Lake Park. The  Bachman Lake Park bond projects include:

  • Renovation of the Bachman Lake Recreation Center Auditorium ($1.5M)

  • Construction of new environmentally friendly parking lot for aquatics center andskatepark ($1.5M)

  • Replacement of Playground next to the historic Bachman Lake Pavilion ($750K)

  • Replacement of the all-abilities playground near Bachman Recreation Center ($750K)

  • Fund to improve connectivity and trials within Bachman Lake Park ($250K)

Other projects outside of the park which could help with accessibility to Bachman Lake include the reconstruction of Shorecrest Drive from Harry Hines to Lemmon, and funding to assist with developing Denton drive into a “complete street” with bike lanes.

Early Voting is April 22-30, and election day is May 4th. For more information about the bond campaign visit and for the full list of projects visit the Dallas City Hall Bond Website.

The total bond package will be separated into 10 proposals, each designated with a letter to give Dallas residents a vote on each. Our local CBS News station offers more details on each proposal.

For voting locations, a sample ballot and more information, including a check on your voting status (which we always recommend), visit the Dallas County voting website.
