Five Mile Dam Park Closed Until Further Notice

Hays County Courthouse, San Marcos, TX – The Hays County Parks Department reminds the public that Five Mile Dam Park is currently closed to the public as of today, Thursday, June 25.

Countywide Operations Director Tammy Crumley said the move was necessary to prevent overcrowding and help slow the spread of the COVID-19 virus.

“With the City of San Marcos closing its river parks, we cannot sustain the influx of patrons at Five Mile Dam,” she said. “Our main goal in closing this park is to avoid large crowds gathering while Hays County is experiencing a surge in coronavirus cases.”

Crumley said the park and access to the Blanco River at that location will be closed until further notice. No other Hays County parks or natural areas are closed at this time.

  1. Does everyone in charge realize that this disease spreads indoors only for the most part? Not only will there be no spread in the parks, but you’re encouraging people to stay indoors, where the risk is higher. If you at all say you care about science please show me data on your choice. You can’t do that obviously. I hope you’re all voted out.
