Flooding shutters five Texas state parks

BURNET, Tex. — Five Texas state parks are closed to the public after recent Central Texas flooding forced Texas Parks and Wildlife to block off driveways and trails due to high water.

The five parks: Inks Lake State Park, Colorado Bend State Park, South Llano River State Park, Abilene State Park and Lake Whitney State Park all have varying degrees of flooding, according to Texas Parks and Wildlife.

“Whenever we have these flooding events, unfortunately, it does lead to closures,” spokesperson Stephanie Garcia said.
