San Felipe Creek fun

Friends, from left, Jaimee Sanchez, Desiree Rosales and Anabelle Montemayor, enjoy an afternoon of tubing on the San Felipe Creek at San Felipe Lions Memorial Park on Wednesday afternoon. The Del Rio City Council voted Tuesday to reopen the creek for swimming and other recreational activities.

Del Rioans are once again free to swim and splash in the cool, clear waters of the San Felipe Creek.

Del Rio City Council members during a special meeting Tuesday voted 5-2 to reopen the creek for recreational activities, though the mayor warned if positive COVID-19 cases are traced back to interactions along the creek, the local health authority could close it again.
