Comal Park Closes for the Season, WORD Sticks with USACE Schedule

Comal Park is closed for the season. It will reopen on April 1, 2021.

The 116-acre Comal Park closed for the season on Sept. 30, Water Oriented District of Comal County (WORD) said on its website.

WORD, which took over the park from the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers (USACE) earlier this year, said it committed to keeping the first year of operations consistent with the Corps’ schedule.

“This question and others that we have been asked will be discussed and decisions made for future park operation,” said WORD General Manager Mike Dussere.

Decisions about future operating date ranges will be made over the winter, he said.

Comal Park, located on the south side of Canyon Lake, is day-use only and features picnic sites, two boat ramps, a pea-gravel and sand swim beach, a playground, and restrooms throughout the park.

The park has a variety of recreational activities including a sand volleyball court, soccer goals, and four washer pits.

    Please do not reduce the park hours. As population at Canyon Lake continues to increase at a rapid pace, residents and visitors are extremely limited in lake access. The lack of public options is forcing people to congregate at the boat ramps which creates a dangerous situation, an accident waiting to happen.
    While Canyon Lake was created with the purpose of flood prevention, it has become a popular recreational lake as well. People will find a way to access the water, illegally if no public access is available. USACE has a chance to benefit financially from it’s popularity.
