So much greenery!

My family and I love this place. From the trails, wildlife, and water there is so much to do. Come here and have fun for hours. Bring water during the summer.

I stopped here for a while during a break inbetween meetings. A beautiful, quiet place to walk. Tall bamboo rustling in the breeze. The sound of the river. A great place to walk.

I hiked here and found it to be very beautiful and relaxing. Love the large bamboo. The sounds of the river are so serene. Lush green everywhere. Must try the Jacob's Ladder...wow! Very sore the next day.

We ended our Waco trip by coming here. We stopped at all of the interest points. Lovers Leap was beautiful. Jacob's Ladder was intense, but a must. Very calm and relaxing park to visit.

Beautiful park! Spectacular views from many locations in the park. Must climb Jacob's Ladder...fun steep climb. At the top is the "Old" country club. Lots of play grounds for children. Lovely drive through the park.

I saw this park while on a tour of Waco. Absolutely beautiful park for hiking, picnics and just taking in nature. Lovers Leap has a beautiful view of the Bosque River. Jacob's Ladder is also a must see. Great panoramic views.

Drive to the top and park. Enjoy the view up top and the Brazos river down below. Great park up top with restrooms and water fountains. Take a short or long hike down below along the Brazos river. Great place to spend 30 minutes or 3 hours!

What a special place right in the middle of Waco! Something for every age to include the Zoo, every level of hiking or biking trails, picnics, romantic walks, etc. Great bathrooms!

Been to a ton of parks all over and this one is right at the top. We hiked close to 12 miles in two days and still did not cover every trail. It is a maze of trials from simple to pretty strenuous. Get a map and its easy to get around, I printed one online. The lower river trail... More

Great place to visit. It hugs the Brazos River and is home to the Cameron Park Zoo. Its easy to access from I-35.
