Jackson Point, which lies off West Lawther Drive, is the most prominent "point" on the west side of the lake. Complete with five comfortable wooden benches and a nice, shady tree, this is a wonderful place to sit and watch the sailboats sweep past as they make their way from their harbor near the Big Thicket on the opposite shore, to the south end of the lake and back. From here, many other eastern shore landmarks are also visible, including Flag Pole Hill, the Bath House Cultural Center, Dreyfuss Point, and Winfrey Point.
In 1998 a bronze tablet was placed here at the base of a tree, in memory of 47-year-old cycling coach Mary Jane "Miji" Reoch, who died five years earlier after being struck by an automobile while cycling around the lake. The plaque also informed passersby that Reoch was eleven times U.S Cycling Federation National Champion and a friend of White Rock Lake. Unfortunately, it was placed without official permission from the City of Dallas. Consequently, it has since been removed. Whether or not it will be restored to the site remains to be seen.
