Ropes Park beach is not a place that Texas is proud of. Due to sewer overspills, Ropes Park is one of the dirtiest beaches in the state. This beach is not safe for visitors to wade or swim in due to high levels of bacteria.
The Texas Commission on Environmental Quality is working with local branches to clean up and monitor the beaches throughout the state. These are community projects that were put in place to reduce bacteria and protect recreational safety at the Ropes Park Beach.
