Harker Heights City Council members and city staff met Tuesday for a workshop at the Dana Peak Park’s Comanche Gap Pavilion to discuss the potential lease of the park, which is more than 600 acres of Army Corps of the Engineers property located at 3800 Comanche Gap Road.

City staff, council members and residents have engaged in discussions for years about acquiring the camp. The Tuesday meeting may have been the first official step in acquiring Dana Peak Park as the newest campsite for residents of Harker Heights.

The people who live here bought houses here because of the quiet naturallands ape and wildlife in the area. Concerts will only bring trash and traffic. Drive down Comanche Gap right now and you will see where some joker lined the road with beer bottles on our beautiful trees. Bottles just hanging on the tree branches... I'm sorry, but this plan is not good for this area. Leave Dana Park the destination it currently is- for nature hikes, boating, swimming, and serenity.
