The city of Waco continues to build up its park system as it expects Baylor University’s McLane Stadium to draw crowds to the downtown area.

Signs were installed this week along the downtown park trail next to the Brazos River and across the bank at the intersection of North Martin Luther King Jr. Boulevard and Herring Avenue.

Two kiosks were installed at Indian Spring Park and Bledsoe-Miller Park.

Four directional signs and 12 quarter-mile markers along the pathway also were installed.

City of Waco officials said more signs will be put in after the riverwalk construction near downtown is complete.

Cost for the signs was $110,000. The money was taken from the Public Improvement District and Tax Increment Financing Zone.
