We have been wondering for a long time when the “low water” boat ramp in Meadowmere Park would open. Several years ago, Grapevine began construction on new low water ramp. The ramp was completed, but when the lake level fell the low water ramp closed just like all the others.
This defeated the purpose of the $600,000 low water ramp.
Now as Lake Grapevine sits at 12 feet low, we have word that the low water ramp has been extended and is now usable at these low lake levels.
Here is the word from the city of Grapevine:
The Meadowmere Park, 3000 Meadowmere Lane, low water boat ramp has reopened! Parks staff has extended the length of the ramp for use during extremely low lake levels. Please travel slowly and proceed in and out of the water with caution as shifting and drops could occur with regular use. Due to the ramp being within a controlled access park, the boat ramp will open at 6am and will close at dusk (all vehicles must exit the park at that time). Annual pass or $5 daily rate applies. Please visit grapevinetexas.gov to purchase an annual pass.
This is great news for Lake Grapevine boaters who were having trouble getting on the lake. Prior to this week, only one ramp was open on the lake.
Now, all we need is some rain to fill the lake back up.
