All Grapevine Lake Parks Reopen as Water Levels Recede

    Lake Grapevine flooded earlier this year. As water levels recede, parks and ramps have been opening up.

    Grapevine city officials announced that lake levels have receded and all Grapevine Lake parks have been reopened.

    While the parks are open, a few ramps still remain closed: Dove Loop Ramp, Katie’s Woods Ramp (low water), Lakeview Ramp (north), Lakeview Ramp (south), Meadowmere Park Ramp (low water), Sand Bass Point Ramp and Trawick Ramp.

    As water continues to recede, additional boat ramps will be opened. Officials say that boaters should remain cautious and stay near the center of the lake and away from the shoreline to avoid submerged structures and debris.

    Lake-goers can check out the Grapevine Lake hazard map for more information.
