The City of Palestine Parks and Recreation Department has announced that areas of Wolf Creek Lake have been closed to the public.
Due to the recent heavy rains, a large section of the waterfall and the dam at Wolf Creek
Lake have collapsed making it very dangerous. Because of safety concerns, it was decided
to close the area to the public.
Visitors to the area will find signs at the entrance to the dam indicating that it is dangerous,
and no trespassing is allowed. The area has also been marked as dangerous with purple
paint on poles. In Texas, purple paint means 'No Trespassing'.
"At this time, access to the dam and the surrounding area is restricted to City of Palestine
staff." said Patsy Smith, City of Palestine, Parks and Recreation Director. Anyone caught
ignoring the posted signs could face possible Criminal Trespass charges.
