Located in the Panhandle Plains Region of Texas, Lucy Park is found in the center of the city along the I-44 corridor.

The Falls Lucy Park, Wachita Falls, TX One of the main focal points of Lucy Park, the 54 foot waterfall, a multi-level cascade, is reached over concrete paved pathway. Doubling as a bike path (the start of the city's Circle Trail System), the concrete trail follows the river through a beautiful landscaped setting for a Lucy Park trail, Wachita Falls, TX 15 minute walk to the falls. The waterfall is also a rare treat for south-bound I-44 travelers as they may catch a glimpse of the falls at the Wichita River Bridge.
