Travis County will extend park amenity openings to include most of the county park system's boat ramps May 22, according to an announcement from Travis County Parks.

Boat ramps opening in time for Memorial Day weekend include Collier boat ramp at Pace Bend Park and the ramps at Loop 360 Park, Mansfield Dam Park, Ankansas Bend Park, Cypress Creek Park, Mary Quinlan Park, Webberville Park and Little Webberville Park. Commercial use of boat ramps remains prohibited.


Visitors are encouraged to check the status of Travis County parks online ahead of time, as some parks and park amenities still remain closed, including all county pools, water fountains, pavilions and playscapes. Others may impose limits on the number of visitors allowed on the premises. When attending open parks, visitors are recommended to use face coverings and bring sanitizer, the release said.

Further information on park openings and developments can be found at www.parks.traviscountytx.gov.
