    Friends of Cameron Park

    The owners on Outdoor Waco proposed to the City of Waco to install a zipline across the river from Lawson Point to Cameron Park East. They are also proposing a ropes course in Cameron Park East. The city is considering both of these. Part of the original deed for Cameron Park -the side of the river with the trails- is that none of the park be used for commercial development so the original deed would have to be amended. Cameron Park East is solely owned by the city, I believe, so has no stipulations. A tower(50ft?) is proposed to be built at Lawson Point.

    Thumbs up

    It appears that Outdoor Waco is reconsidering the location of the ropes course and zipline.

    Backers of a zip line and adventure park have shifted their focus to a downtown site, defusing a controversy about earlier plans that would have involved the cliffs of Cameron Park.

    Officials with Outdoor Waco said their new preferred site for the venture is the Brazos River between Franklin Avenue and the abandoned railroad bridge just downstream.

    The group last month proposed building an “aerial adventure park” where people could climb on ropes and ladders in the woods at Brazos Park East. The concept included a zip line that would cross the river from Lawson’s Point at Cameron Park to Brazos Park East.

    The new idea is to put the aerial adventure park in the woods on the east side of the river near the old railroad bridge, Robb said. Zip line users could fly over the river on a cable strung from a 60-to-70-foot tower that would be built somewhere on the west bank of the Brazos.

    Robb said the east-side property and the railroad bridge are up for sale by Union Pacific railroad.

    The old railroad bridge is both a challenge and an opportunity for the venture, Robb said. Ideally, the bridge could provide pedestrian access to the wooded area on the east side. There currently is no other pedestrian or vehicle access to the site.
