Silly. Now we get to see a beautiful lake and park sit empty during the best time of the year for us locals who enjoy the outdoors more so in cooler weather. 😠
You used to able to walk down to what is now "Swim beach #2" at Canyon Park and enjoy it during this cool weather. It was usually only locals and even if they didn't clean up after themselves volunteers like myself kept the area clean. Now you get told to leave the area by WORD if you try to get to any beach along the Madrone trail without paying. It's really disappointing they haven't found an option for local residents to enjoy these great parks in the off season that they now maintain solely for the tourists. There are now only 2 free parking beach areas I know of here in Canyon Lake left and one of those is still a somewhat well kept secret and we can only hope it stays that way.
😳 Too bad there isn't a way for non-boating Canyon Lake residents, to be able to enjoy these swim areas in the off-season. It kinda becomes a "look but don't touch" for us. But it is an awesome look!
