The WHOLE Enchilada  

Enjoy Waco! • Get involved!



Thankful to Keep Waco Beautiful and this wonderful group of volunteers who, along with the Waco Parks and Recreation crew, worked together to establish a new garden at Bledsoe-Miller Community Center!

Featuring native, pollinator and drought-tolerant plants, the sensory garden will include a pathway park visitors can use to stroll through and enjoy the vegetation. A plant identification sign will also be installed in the coming days.

The project was made possible through a Keep Texas Beautiful grant, and we are grateful for beautification projects like these that the entire community can enjoy.
