One of the jewels of Waco, Cameron Park is a 416-acre park is named for Waco philanthropist and lumber baron William Cameron.
With 15 miles of hiking and biking trails, Cameron Park hosts numerous races and events.
The limestone cliffs that line the Brazos River make for spectacular views from areas like Lovers Leap. Those wanting to test their stamina can make the trek up the crazy staircase that is Jacob’s Ladder.
A 23-hole disc golf course is in Cameron Park, with a separate 18-hole course at nearby Brazos Park East, which also offers horseshoe pits and a boat launch.
The Cameron Park Zoo comprises 52 acres of the park and is a great place to visit for any age.
Cameron Park features three large playgrounds — Pecan Bottoms, Anniversary Park and the Northern Gateway — that have swings, slides, bridges and climbing obstacles. Pecan Bottoms features a splash pad while the Northern Gateway has water misters to help contend with the summer heat.
