Lions Park 1980s 13
The Future of Lions park

About the Project

The City of Waco, Lions Park Trust Board, and many community partners, are pleased to announce the revitalization of Waco’s beloved treasure, Lions Park at 1716 N 42nd St in Waco. This will be a long-term project requiring a big imagination!

In 2018, Waco Foundation convened a group of partners interested in the park, and ultimately commissioned a survey that received more than 2,000 responses from Wacoans. The results of the survey were overwhelmingly positive when asked about its value to the community.

Earlier this year, the City of Waco made a commitment to revitalize this historic park land.

The immediate future of Lions Park include: continued meetings of community partners, site plans, and community fundraising.  All plans will be designed to preserve the Waco Lions’ intent and the final project will remain affordable and relevant for Waco families.

While the park will temporarily close to undergo a strategic planning and rebuilding process, the City of Waco has committed $2 million to ensure the brightest future for Lions Park.
