Lake Park is closed to vehicle traffic due to rising lake levels, Lewisville Parks and Recreation Department announced on its website May 27.

The lake levels are expected to continue to rise with more rain in the forecast, possibly extending the closure through the Memorial Day holiday.

Tower Bay boat ramps and courtesy docks are also closed. The campgrounds, fishing barge and Lake Park Gold Course remain open for public use and pedestrians are still permitted to walk around the park and fish offshore.

Visitors to Lake Park can park in any lot, with spots closest to the park located in the north lot of Bob Wiseman Soccer Complex on Turtle Trail between Sandy Beach Road and Lake Park Road. Lake Park Road also features parking spaces, but Lewisville Parks and Recreation’s release notes that parking may be limited due to scheduled sporting events.

Lewisville Parks and Recreation cautions that water is already covering roads and trails, making them impassable and posing a safety concern. Floodwaters have changed the conditions of the shoreline and have submerged some objects, such as picnic tables, signs and other structures.


Visitors are encouraged to wear a life jacket when walking along the shore.

Lewisville Parks and Recreation Department will post updates as lake conditions change on its Twitter, Facebook and at playlewisville.com.
