Event comments

There is parking around the Gibson Park area. Weslaco is in Hidalgo County at 26933N 975915 W. The Valley Nature Center's 6-acre park is home to a wide variety of native plants and animals. The aim is to protect local plant species diversity as well as to make diverse food and habitat available for resident and migratory wildlife. Weslaco was known during WWII as the "sandbagging capital of the world." The city also was known a the Neon City because businesses used neon signage dating back to the late 1800's. Many of these are still in use today. Closed on all major holidays.
