FORT WORTH, Texas–The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, Fort Worth District announced Wilson H. Fox Park at Granger Lake is scheduled to re-open at noon, May 21. The park has been closed since September 12 for public safety measures due to construction of a raw water intake structure, a pump station and a 48 foot pipeline done by the Brazos River Authority.
Park users will see improvements in the park such as new roads and R.V. parking pads, electrical upgrades to most of the campsites, more parking to accommodate park visitors, as well as new landscaping.
The BRA will be performing ongoing work while the park is open but the work will be limited to the section of the park that is closed to the public. The closed section will not limit the availability of the recreation facilities. It is the intent of the BRA to minimize traffic, noise, and dust during this time.
For more information contact the Granger Lake Office at (512) 859-2668 or Judi Pierce at the Brazos River Authority at (254) 761-3103.
