Published Jan. 18, 2019

FORT WORTH, Texas – U.S. Army Corps of Engineers officials at Lewisville Lake announced today that, due to the recent rainfall and lake levels, completion of repairs of recreation facilities at Lewisville Lake will be delayed until late March.

The work that began in October 2018 has impacted operations at several parks and campgrounds at Lewisville Lake. Repairs are being made at Hickory Creek Park, Westlake Park, West Lake Park South and Big Sandy Boat Ramp Area.

At Hickory Creek Park, repairs include RV electrical upgrades, RV pad extensions for handicap accessibility, handicap accessible BBQ grills and picnic tables, pavement road and parking improvements, and group pavilion electrical improvements and pavilion repair. At Westlake Park, improvements include picnic shelter repairs, group pavilion repairs, new handicap accessible picnic tables and BBQ grills, parking and road repairs, and pipe fencing repairs. The Westlake Park South repairs include re-grading of the road and parking area to include surface treatment. The Big Sandy Boat Ramp Area will include additional parking, pavement repair, and pipe fencing. 

Due to the nature of the work and construction equipment moving between locations the parks will not be available until repairs are complete. 

For more information, please contact the Lewisville Lake Office at 469-645-9100.
