Rising lake levels close parks, boat ramps at Lewisville Lake

Water is released from the Lewisville Dam outlet, which is located at the Lewisville Lake Environmental Learning Area.

Water is released from the Lewisville Dam outlet, which is located at the Lewisville Lake Environmental Learning Area.

Recent storms have caused the water levels of Lewisville Lake to rise to 527.63 feet, almost 6 feet above normal pool level.

Due to continuing widespread flooding, Lake Park and Tower Bay Park remain closed until conditions permit, Lewisville Parks & Recreation Director Stacie Anaya said.

Anaya said the lake itself is not closed, but the public boat ramps are. However, people who rent boat slips from Eagle Point Marina or Pier 121 still have the ability to access the lake.
At this time, there is not an exact date on when the parks will reopen.
