COVID-19: protecting public health

In an effort to protect public health and discourage social gathering, the Water Oriented Recreation District (WORD) has decided to keep Comal Park closed until further notice. We are excited to invite the public in as soon as it is deemed safe to do so. It is important that we take precautions to limit the spread of COVID-19 and reduce the risk to our community. For more information email info@wordcc.com.
