Grand Prairie, Texas
July 25, 2001
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 or canoeing, 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. For the nature lovers, the Park Rangers offer outdoor treks to explore Waco’s rocks, trees, fossils, and critters. Don’t be surprised if you spot an armadillo or a roadrunner on your guided tour of Cameron Park.
