BENBROOK, Texas --
U.S. Army Corps of Engineers officials at Benbrook Lake announce today changes to park operations beginning April 1.
Public interest and use trends over the last few years has created a need for operational changes at Mustang Park to a day use activities only area. Overnight camping will no longer be permitted in Mustang Park but will still be available nearby in the Holiday and Bear Creek campgrounds. Recreating activities like picnicking, fishing and swimming will be allowed during hours of park operation at Mustang Park.
Other changes to Benbrook Lake parks will soon be pay stations for Mustang and Rocky Creek Parks. “We appreciate the publics’ cooperation and understanding as we continue to refine how we operate our parks and recreation areas for the benefit of our customers,” said Natural Resources Specialist/Park Ranger Lyndy Black.
