$6 Million Texas Recreation/RV Park Planned
Waco, Texas, residents at public meeting Thursday (Nov. 14) greeted the proposed Hawaiian Falls campground resort and adventure park with a mixture of excitement about recreational activities and concern about environmental impact.
The meeting before the Parks and Recreation Advisory Commission drew about 25 people with a variety of perspectives on the $6 million project proposed on city-owned land, the Waco Tribune-Herald reported.
Most said the development between the Hawaiian Falls water park and the Bosque River would boost Waco’s tourism and add to Waco’s opportunities for fun. The proposed complex would offer ziplines, rope courses, climbing walls and kayak rentals for the public as well as for RV and tent campers.
But some people raised concerns about light and noise pollution and the trees that would have to be removed for the development.
Others questioned the wisdom of putting an RV park on Waco’s most scenic stretch of river. The development would spread out across 31 acres of woodland directly across the Bosque from Lovers Leap.
