The dam at Medina Lake
Medina Lake, an artificial lake on the Medina River, is eight miles northwest of the Medina River in southeast Bandera and northeast Medina counties (its center is at 29°32' N, 98°56' W). The lake was constructed to irrigate farmlands in Medina, Bexar, and Atascosa counties, but it also became an important recreational facility in the area.
