Heavy rains over the past week filled local creeks, ponds, and eventually Lake Grapevine. Rain fell most of Wednesday evening and on into Thursday. Over 4.5 inches of rainfall were recorded over that two day period.
Parks were flooded on Thursday and closed to the public in southern Grapevine. Parr Park (seen above) and Big Bear park were the most impacted of the parks because they run along Big Bear Creek.
The lake level of Lake Grapevine had been several feet low for months, but now is about 2 feet above normal. Several boat ramps are currently closed due to high water including Katie’s Woods ramp, Sand Bass ramp, and Lake View ramps.
The rain was a big help to all area lakes.
