Fort Worth District, U.S. Army Corps of Engineers Officials at Canyon Lake announced today the temporary closure of Overlook parking which began on November 7 is now scheduled through January 31.
Heavy construction equipment movement providing enhanced security and parking improvements are causing this closure. A new exit lane is also under construction. The entire area is closed for pedestrian and vehicle traffic impacting access to the dam near the lake office and Overlook areas. Outdoor enthusiasts can access the top of the dam via North Park Road. Parking is limited to only six vehicles.
“We understand access to the area is important to our visiting public, but we must provide a safe environment for our visitors and in order to ensure their safety we will be restricting access until the work is complete” said Canyon Lake Manager, Javier Pérez Ortiz.
Outdoor enthusiasts are encouraged to use the Madrone Trail or the John Hancock Trails to exercise and enjoy the beautiful lake scenery. Canyon Lake staff members encourage all visitors to practice leave-no-trace, use designated trash receptacles and always wear a life jacket while boating or anytime in or near the water.
