Cliff Jumping/Diving Not Allowed At City Park

No Diving Sign

As a friendly reminder, cliff jumping and/or diving is not allowed at Lakeway City Park. There have been instances of individuals jumping off elevated ledges in the park, which could cause severe injuries depending on the lake level. Rocks and ledges below the water level can be difficult to see. Cliff jumping and/or diving is also prohibited by city ordinance, a violation of which could cost an individual up to $2,000. 

Cliff jumping can be dangerous in any area. In any location where it is allowed, it's extremely important that every cliff jumper prepares and surveys the area before attempting their jump. Never jump without knowing how deep the water level is, along with how deep you need it to be based upon how high you are jumping. It's also important to be aware of possible debris in the water as well. If the cliff is 40 feet or more in height, it's not recommended for anyone to attempt a jump. It's important to follow basic safety rules. Cliff jumpers/divers have either died or had life-altering injuries due to risky attempts at locations that weren't deemed unsafe.
