For the first time since October 2009, the entrance gate to Border Field State Park is now open to vehicles on weekends only. Typically, the gate is closed only during the winter months due to sediment and flooding issues caused by winter rains. Last year, however, a series of problems kept it closed. We are happy to announce that some of the issues have been resolved, at least for now, and we have the fiscal ability to open the gates on weekends from 9:30am – 6:00pm. Fortunately, the unexpected rain on Labor Day weekend wasn’t enough to close the gates again. We truly appreciate your extreme patience.
