Cameron Park encompasses a range of landscapes from wonderful tree-lined roads, limestone cliffs to the smooth Brazos River. One can enjoy the wildflowers, mountain bike the rugged trails, ride a horse around the bridle path, or play a round of disc golf. Cameron Park is one of the state’s largest municipal parks and an outdoor-lover’s dream. Natives and tourists alike appreciate the park’s vast resources.
The 416 acres of Cameron Park offer something for everyone. For the water lover, the Brazos and Bosque Rivers make for a fun day of fishing, canoeing, or kayaking, complete with easy-access boat ramps.
For wildflower enthusiasts, Miss Nellie’s Pretty Place showcases Texas’ many native wildflowers and plants, with rock-lined paths, a picturesque pool, and amphitheater—just the spot to rest and soak in the outdoor beauty. For the athletic crowd, Cameron Park offers sand volleyball courts, hiking paths, mountain-biking trails, bridle paths, horseshoe pits, and two scenic disc golf courses.
Cameron Park is great for families; parents can picnic in riverside pavilions or under giant shade trees while the kids play on the playgrounds and spray parks. For the nature lovers, the Park Rangers offer outdoor treks to explore Waco’s rocks, trees, fossils, and critters. Don’t be surprised if an armadillo or a roadrunner is discovered during a guided tour of Cameron Park.
