Pace Bend Park site of controlled burns

Tuesday, December 4, 2018 by Tai Moses

Travis County Parks staff and local fire personnel are set to converge on Pace Bend Park this week to conduct multiple prescribed burns in select areas of the popular park. The strategically planned burns will help to reduce fire danger and improve the health of the ecosystem by eliminating dead vegetation and invasive plants. The burns will take place between 10 a.m. and 6 p.m. and will be completed in about three to five hours. The park will remain open during this time though some areas will be off-limits to visitors.
