Operated by the City of Waco Water Utility Services, the Lake Waco Wetlands area provides a great place to go birdwatching, walking or wildlife viewing.

The Lake Waco Wetlands cover 180 acres along the North Bosque River. The ecosystem is now thriving, but this wetlands is manmade. It was created to mitigate habitat loss when the level of Lake Waco was raised by seven feet.
