On March 27, 2023, the Guadalupe Blanco River Authority (GBRA) began the process of lowering the spillgates at Lake McQueeney and Meadow Lake. As a result, the Lake Nolte/Meadow Lake Paddling Trail in Max Starcke Park East is closed to the public until further notice. The paddling trail in Max Starcke Park West near the bowl waterfall will remain open on Lake Seguin. This paddling trail is not affected by the drawdown because it is located upstream. GBRA has stated "In the interest of safety, all activity on and downstream of the Guadalupe Valley Lakes and in the exposed lake bed shall be suspended until the process is complete, as unpredictable increases in river flow may occur. Community members should stay out of the water and continue to maintain a safe distance from the dam at all times." 

A 227 acre park located along the scenic Guadalupe River. The park property was a pecan orchard prior to the park's dedication in 1938. The park offers a variety of recreational activities that include a regulation 18-hole golf course, Wave Pool, natural fishing area, paddling trail, walking trail (0.8 miles), tennis, basketball and volleyball courts. For children, there is a Kids Kingdom Playscape and the Little League baseball-softball complex. Pavilion and picnic areas are available throughout the park. For more information please call 830-401-2480. 

Recreational use of the Guadalupe River in Max Starcke Park is currently restricted in the designated "Restricted Safe Zone" by Court Order prompted by a spillgate failure on Lake Dunlap in fall 2019. Pole fishing from the riverbank is permitted, except near the City of Seguin Water Treatment Plant.

Recreational water activities including swimming, wading and tubing are currently prohibited in the Guadalupe River along Max Starcke Park.

Boating, jet skiing, canoeing and kayaking are only permitted in the designated “Restricted Unsafe Zone." Life jackets are required. 

Pole fishing from the riverbank is permitted, except just upstream of the Saffold Dam near the City of Seguin Water Treatment Plant.

Potential danger zones throughout the six Guadalupe Valley Lakes were determined by an expert panel.
