After months of delays due to construction and historic flooding, the day-use areas and hike and bike trails at Lewisville Lake Park will re-open to the public Oct. 1.

Construction on various parts of Lake Park began last October, but historic flooding forced all work to stop. During the past few months, crews have been repaving roads, creating sidewalks, fixing drainage problems, and cleaning up trails within the park.

Lake Park soccer fields also received a major overhaul. All the grass was removed from the fields, the ground was leveled, and a new hybrid type of grass that is more resilient to wear and tear and handles the weather better was laid down. New walkways and handicap accessible sidewalks were added around the fields.

Lake Park encompasses more than 662 acres located along the Lewisville Lake shoreline just east of Mill Street. The park is operated by the city on property leased from the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers. It contains a golf course, athletic facilities and lake-related facilities such as campgrounds, beaches, docks, boat ramps and picnic areas.

Entry to Lake Park is $3 per vehicle for Lewisville residents, $1 per vehicle for Lewisville residents over 60, $10 per vehicle for non-Lewisville residents and $5 per vehicle for non-Lewisville residents over 60.

  1. “Entry to Lake Park is $3 per vehicle for Lewisville residents,,,” There is a cost to enter the Laker Park dock and campgrounds. There is No cost to enter the beaches along Sandy Beach Road. No cost to play disc golf at the Lake Park Disc Golf Course. No cost to drive into the Fishing Shack’s parking area and then you can pay to fish at a very unique spot. No cost to enter the softball and soccer (world Football) fields. No cost to enter the cricket field or park at the driving range. Perhaps, one might visit the Lake Park before incorrectly editing PR from the Parks and Leisure Services department.

    • This story is about Lake Park’s day use areas, which have been closed off for the work on the roads. We have had past stories about the other areas and facilities in and around Lake Park.

      The new roads are nice, and open up something like 90% of the land area of the park, as well as most of the beach areas.
