LAKE WHITNEY STATE PARK W H I T N E Y S T A T E P A R K © SANDRA DAVIS L A K E THE LEGENDARY BRAZOS er Riv os az Br A Texas legend, the Brazos River cuts a path through the heartland of Texas from the Panhandle to the coast south of Houston. Spanish explorers thankful for fresh water named the river “Brazos de Dios” or the “Arms of God.” The Comanches called it “tohopt pah-e-hone” or “blue water river,” and used it as a KIMBALL BEND travel route into WACO central Texas from their homelands in the Staked Plains. Western songs and HILL folklore popularKimball Lake Whitney Bend ized the river Park Lake Whitney SP as cattle BOSQUE drives crossed the Brazos at Waco and Kimball Bend. The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers dammed the Brazos River in 1951, creating Lake Whitney. Named for the nearby community of Whitney, the large lake covers 37 square miles with over 225 miles of shoreline. A power plant at the dam generates electricity as water is released downstream. © LAUREN STALEY With the Brazos prone to occasional flooding, Lake Whitney holds over 2 million acre-feet of water (about 2 million football fields covered with 12 inches of water) at flood level, protecting Waco and other communities. In 2015, a series of heavy rainfalls caused the lake to rise to near historic levels. Unfortunately much of the State Park flooded but the dam protected residents downstream. TRACES OF THE PAST T During the spirng and summer, the prairie comes alive with wildflowers like these Texas bluebonnets in blue, pink and white. THE WASHITA PRAIRIE Lake Whitney State Park lies on the Washita Prairie, the eastern edge of the greater Grand Prairie that stretches from the Red River south to the Colorado River. The Washita Prairie landscape features gently rolling grasslands of little bluestem and Indiangrass. Isolated trees and oak stands crown the hilltops. Brown, shallow soils cover a foundation of hard limestone rock, creating rugged white outcrops where the soil erodes away. Ribbons of woodlands follow the creeks and streams feeding the Brazos River. Along the nature trail you’ll find netleaf hackberry, cedar elm, post oak, soapberry and plateau live oak. The prairie bursts into bloom each spring with over 40 specie
