SAN ANTONIO – "Open with Restrictions" is the current state of several state parks, according to a statement issued by the Texas Parks and Wildlife Department.

A department spokesman issued the statement in anticipation of the tropical system developing in the Gulf of Mexico.

Galveston Island State Park, Mustang Island State Park and Sea Rim State Park are all open, but are no longer accepting reservations.

Mustang Island State Park is anticipating the closure of the beach area due to rising tides.
