SAN MARCOS, TEXAS (KXAN) — The Hays County Development Services Department said today that Hays County Parks would remain closed until further notice. Those parks include Johnson and Vetter Parks along the Blanco River at Five Mile Dam, and Jacob’s Well Natural Area near Wimberley.
“All of our parks had flooding and damage from the intense rain and flood waters,” Development Services Director Clint Garza said. “For the safety of our visitors as well as to ensure that no additional damage occurs, the parks will be closed until we can fully assess and repair damage, which may take weeks to months.”
Hays County says that some of the repairs at Johnson Park had just been completed following the Memorial Weekend floods and will now have to be redone.
Transfer stations where residents can drop off solid waste and recyclables will remain open for their regular times.
