Activities

Capacity

Bob Wentz Park generally reaches capacity on holiday weekends. In order to prevent overcrowding and to promote an enjoyable visitor experience, when capacity is reached, the park is closed for the remainder of the day to all incoming traffic, including pedestrians.

The Point

The Point is a small, sandy peninsula with covered picnic areas, restrooms, and access to the water. No pets are allowed in this area.

Parking on The Point is limited. When the parking lot reaches capacity, vehicles are allowed in on a "five out, five in" basis.

Boat Ramp

For the safety of park visitors, the boat ramp is restricted to non-motorized watercraft only.

Pavilion

The pavilion has an outstanding view of Lake Travis with windows and French doors on all sides. There is a covered walkway around the perimeter and plenty of trees for shade and privacy. There are several six-foot long tables with about 20-25 chairs. The pavilion has a ceiling fan, electrical outlets, a fireplace (users must bring their own firewood), and a sink with running water.
