Located on the scenic Brazos River, Waco in Central Texas offers a number of activities, sites, and places to enjoy. The "signature" welcome to Waco is the historic suspension bridge, that spans the Brazos River and was completed in 1870.
A cowboy sculpture and a herd of bronze longhorns at the Waco Suspension Bridge are part of the Waco Chisholm Trail Heritage public sculpture project "Branding the Brazos," a cattle drive sculpture grouping by artist Robert Summers. The Waco Suspension Bridge was the main crossing point for the historic cattle drives heading north on the Chisholm Trail, and this sculpture commemorates those days. When the project is complete, a total of four riders and 25 longhorn cattle will fill the park.
Little Waco, 22nd in population with only 125,000 souls within its city limits, is the perfect destination to get the feel of this legendary place called Texas.
