Laguna Park

Laguna Park is on State Highway 22 twenty-seven miles northwest of Waco in southeastern Bosque County. It originated when Whitney Dam was completed about 1951; at that time State Highway 22 was moved from Walling Bend to a roadway on the Whitney Dam crest near Laguna Park. Small shops and a post office were opened to serve the surrounding agricultural area and weekend visitors to Lake Whitney. The community's estimated population was 496 in 1972 and 550 in 1974 through 2000.

Adapted from the official Handbook of Texas, a state encyclopedia developed by the Texas State Historical Association (TSHA). It is an authoritative source of trusted historical records.
