Waco Reviews

1 review
Since I was little, Waco has changed considerably. It has two parks, one of which I would frequent regularly for tennis, basketball, and ball games (baseball/softball). However, one park is right next to the train tracks which could be hazardous for small children. There used to be a high level of drug use in the village, but I believe it has decreased in recent years. It used to be the community where everyone knew everyone, now it isn't that way but I wish it would return to it.
