What is a Special Event or LakeActivity Permit,and Why Would I Need One?
A Special Event permit or Lake Activity permit is required for all group activities that are larger in scope than a typical "family camping" activity. For example, events at the Magnolia Ridge Kid's Fish Pond, weddings, birthday parties, church or school events, fishing tournaments, boat shows, concerts, charity events or large family reunions must be permitted through the Town Bluff Project Office. Having overlapping events in the same park or recreation area can lead to chaos and conflict; therefore proper scheduling of events is absolutely necessary, and for this reason obtaining the proper permit before holding an event is required. The two types of activities differ in that a Special Event usually involves more participants and impacts more recreation areas than does a Lake Activity, and may require a fee or additional requirements. A Lake Activity permit is issued for an event which typically impacts only one recreation area or campground. To find out more about obtaining either of these permits, please contact the Special Events Coordinator at 409-429-3491, or by email at Events Coordinator . Remember, persons who hold events at Town Bluff, whether on or off the water, without obtaining the proper permit(s) are subject to fines and/or prohibitions on future events.

The pond is designed for use by children 15 years old and younger, as well as adults who are unable to safely fish from a boat or accessible shoreline due to severe physical limitations.
