The San Antonio River Walk is a verdant oasis of cypress-lined paved paths, arched stone bridges and lush landscapes. It gently winds through the city center, providing millions of visitors each year with easy access to the city’s cultural hot spots, historic sites and other attractions.
Just steps from the River Walk is Main Plaza – “the heart of the city.”
The San Antonio River symbolizes the heart and soul of the city. Hundreds of years ago, the river was a gathering place for Native Americans. The first civilian Spanish settlers built their homes here in the 1700s. In the late 1920s, the San Antonio Conservation Society, local government officials and business leaders realized what an asset the river could be to the growing city. Architect Robert H. H. Hugman developed River Walk plans that eventually led to construction of a 21-block section from Nueva to Lexington, completed in March of 1941, just in time for Fiesta. The project transformed downtown through beautification, preservation and flood control.
Further revitalization took place in advance of Hemisfair ‘68, the world’s fair held in San Antonio to celebrate the city’s 250thanniversary. New hotels were built and older buildings were renovated. The River Walk was extended from South Alamo Street to the convention center. Passenger river barges began operating for sightseeing tours and dining. The River Walk received national attention and set the stage for what has become one of the state’s top visitor destinations.
Today, in addition to river barge cruisers, visitors can tour the River Walk by bike using the city’s bike share program, B-Cycle. With more than 50 stations throughout downtown, you can tour on two wheels through both the Museum and Mission Reach. And if you are looking for a more adventurous way to tour, visitors can now kayak through the Mission Reach and South Town area of the River Walk.
