Sometimes, just giving a resource a break will actually improve it. This is a minor inconvenience that will have a positive effect on that little lake/pond. There's still Cleburne Lake close by. Patience is rare nowadays. " Some things take time to make em better than before" & it ain't hurting the fishery at all.

My advice would be to stay away. A buddy of mine that was kayaking out there along with 3 other people he didnt know were met by Alvarado PD at the ramp Monday evening. He was given a Criminal trespass warning and the others got ticketed for other things. I dont see a problem with kayakers going out there and enjoying the "City Lake" while the ramp is closed. Obviously home owners called in. I know there is a sign that says park closed, But it's only because of the ramp. Seems to me your fine to put a kayak in. No safety issues or liability with that.

I wonder if all the nasty local sunbathers and swimmers are allowed? I always called them beached Whales. HAAA!

It's possible that with the ramp closed, if there was an emergency, the sheriff/TPWD couldn't launch a boat to provide recovery/search actions.

Do the posted signs say "Ramp Closed" or do they say "Park Closed? There IS a difference. Trespassing if Park Closed. Ramp is in the Park.
On a side note: is it REALLY so important that access to that little pond is so urgent?? I mean , Cmon. REALLY???

Update from city of Alvarado (12 DEC 2018)

Progress is well underway. The new ramp has been poured and some of the flatwork done. Parking lot, restrooms, lighting and some other things remain. I would hope we will be ready to open by early spring!!

I stopped by after a dove hunt to check on the progress, or lack of, same status as Dan posted. I did find the sign modification humorous.

Does anyone know anything about the place that rents kayaks on Alvarado Lake?
