Hays County Parks Closed Indefinitely, Solid Waste/Recycling Centers Open Regular Hours
Hays County Courthouse, San Marcos, TX – The Hays County Development Services Department today said that Hays County Parks – Johnson and Vetter Parks along the Blanco River at Five Mile Dam and Jacob’s Well Natural Area near Wimberley – will remain closed until further notice.
“All of our parks had flooding and damage from the intense rain and flood waters,” Development Services Director Clint Garza said. “For the safety of our visitors as well as to ensure that no additional damage occurs, the parks will be closed until we can fully assess and repair damage, which may take weeks to months.” Some repairs at Johnson Park had just been completed following the Memorial Weekend floods and will have to be redone.
The two transfer stations where residents can drop off solid waste and recyclables will be open their regular times, Tuesdays through Saturdays from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. The stations are located at 1691 Carney Lane (end of County Road 278 in Wimberley), phone 512-618-7175 and 100 Darden Hill Lane (County Road 162 in Driftwood), phone 512-858-9515. The transfer stations are closed on County holidays (in November – Veterans’ Day, November 11 and Thanksgiving, November 25-28).
