AUSTIN (AP) - A more than $7.1 million land sale has been completed for a planned state park in North Texas.

The Texas Parks and Wildlife Department on Tuesday announced it has closed on the purchase of more than 3,300 acres of Cross Timbers region land from several owners.

The sale, which closed last week, involves property that straddles the Palo Pinto County and Stephens County line near Strawn, about 70 miles southwest of Fort Worth. Officials say an agreement is in the works to use Tucker Lake in the planned state park.

No projected opening date has been announced.

Funds for the purchase came from the 2008 sale of the former Eagle Mountain Lake State Park.
