Temporary Boat Ramp Closures: Boat ramps at Brazos Park East will be impacted through the end of the week, due to construction staging for TxDOT's I-35 project.

Temporary Riverwalk Closures: Portions of the Riverwalk will be temporarily closed throughout the upcoming weeks as installation begins on more than two dozen Waco "Sculpture Zoo" animals commemorating the Cameron Park Zoo. The closures will take place from 7:30 a.m. to 5 p.m. on weekdays only. Impacted areas will include sections of the Riverwalk along University Parks Drive, between Washington Avenue and the back entrance of Cameron Park Zoo. We appreciate the public's patience during this project and will keep you updated on progress.
