Many cities that are located on a river have a riverwalk and Waco is no exception. Here the riverwalk follows along the Brazos River from Fort Fisher Park past the Suspension Bridge and Cameron Park all the way to Herring Street, a long leisurely walk in a beautiful setting. Along the way are several things to see and do like a veterans park, docks for launching canoes or kayaks onto the river, picnic areas and more. Watch the wildlife or just relax.
Brazos River is formed by the junction of the Double Mountain Fork and the Salt Fork and flows southeast to empty into the Gulf of Mexico near Freeport. Two large reservoirs north of Waco were formed by the construction on the river of the Possum Kingdom Dam and the Whitney Dam. The Waco Suspension Bridge crosses it.
