Buffalo Springs Lake Plans Face Lift

Buffalo Springs Lake will soon receive half a million dollars in grant money making the lake one step closer to the long term goal: drawing in more people.

Buffalo Springs Lake already receives about 200,000 visitors a year and staff say they want that number to double in the next few years as a result of the changes that are ahead.

The $500,000 grant from the Texas Parks and Wild Life Department will go toward a new three lane boat ramp that will be built on the North west end of the lake. In addition, a new restroom facility will be built, and the three existing restrooms will receive complete renovations.

Terri Furman, coordinator, says it's all part of an effort to give the 48 year old lake a much needed face lift. "It's just a necessity that the lake has got to do. We have no choice about it and in order for people to come visit and for people to enjoy the facilities we have, we've got to revamp them," she explains.

It's estimated the renovations will be underway as early as this summer. Currently it's just $3 per person to spend a day at the lake and it's not known whether that fee will increase or not.
