The Lower Colorado River Authority is reopening some of its parks starting April 22 for day-use only and with certain restrictions.

The river authority owns and operates parks and recreation areas throughout the lower Colorado River basin, including several in the Highland Lakes.

On March 23, the LCRA closed all of its parks due to COVID-19 restrictions.

The LCRA on Wednesday is reopening nine parks and recreation areas and one boat ramp.

Four are in the Highland Lakes:

  • Camp Creek Park, 1221 CR 343 in Marble Falls
  • Cedar Point Recreation Area, 5455 RR 3014 in Tow
  • Gloster Bend Recreation Area, 3533 Hollingsworth Road in Marble Falls
  • Narrows Recreation Area, 2550 CR 411 in Spicewood

The parks are open from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. Regular fees apply.

The LCRA has safety restrictions in place to help slow the spread of COVID-19, the respiratory disease caused by a novel coronavirus.

Visitors to its parks:

  • must wear face coverings
  • limit groups to five or fewer people
  • maintain social distancing from individuals not within their group
