State Park Funding Not on Par with Guest Traffic

Summer is starting and guest traffic at the state parks is growing at a fast speed.

ABILENE, TX - Summer is starting and guest traffic at the state parks is growing at a fast speed.

The Texas Parks and Wildlife Department says visitation has increased by 500,000 in the last year alone.

They requested an additional $24 million to help keep up with operations – but it was denied.

They had planned to remodel the pool and bathhouse at the Abilene State Park, but the project has now been put on hold until further notice.
