The San Antonio River Walk - Everything You Ever Wanted to Know

The San Antonio River Walk

Millions of people visit the River Walk each year to enjoy this unusual urban sanctuary that winds along the San Antonio river in central San Antonio, one story below the bustling street level.

The lush landscapes, quaint pathways, tinkling waterfalls, quiet pools, outdoor art and relaxing outdoor patios evoke the renowned public spaces of Europe.

What started as the vision of a young architect, in 1929, has grown, over the decades, into one of the world's most distinctive meeting places -- old and new friends meet up, travelers pause, families congregate, lovers gaze; and weddings, reunions, business meetings spill over into the River Walk.

Cathy...that is a beautiful photo!  I have heard of the San Antonio Riverwalk but have not yet had the opportunity to travel there to see it in person.  If I ever do I know who to call!

Oh, this looks fabulous.  Suggestion, if it is within your geographic farm or close thereto - research and write about the history of Riverwalk (details, details, details!).

Your Riverwalk looks so charming! We're working on a Greenway along the French Broad River here in Asheville, and I know a number of us would love to see a similar delight here!

Good Evening Cathy:

The San Antonio River Walk is an awesome place to visit.  I have had the pleasure of visiting there about 10 years ago...what an experience!  I enjoyed it so much.  Great information
