The recent issue of the boardwalk connecting the Birding Center to the Conven­tion Centre has been reopened by the county.

“This has been a 2 year dis­cussion. The city council voted on a compromise that kept the long part of the original board­walk over here and closing off the rest to the birding center,” said Dan Quandt of the South Padre Island Economic Devel­opment Corporation.

Since the City Council voted to separate the two boardwalks in May, the Bird­ing Center side has had a us­age charge while the original boardwalk on the Convention Center side has remained free and open to the public.
