Texas Parks and Wildlife Department officials will present plans to turn a golf course that closed in 2010 at Inks Lake State Park into a day-use recreational area.

They’ll also unveil a proposed plan to build a hike and bike trail between Inks Lake State Park and Longhorn Cavern State Park, upgrade trails at both parks, and add interpretive elements that highlight the work of the Civilian Conservation Corps at Longhorn Cavern and along historic Park Road 4.

The public is invited to comment on the proposals at the meeting, which is scheduled for 6:30 to 8:30 p.m. at the City of Burnet Community Center, 1601 South Water Street in Burnet.

Maps showing the planned developments will be available at the meeting.

The public may comment at the meeting or by mail or email. Deadline for comments is Aug. 4.
