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.
