Riverwalk

Ray Grim

At times, San Antonio's holiday season takes some unusual twists. One of those twists is a nowhere-but-San-Antonio kind of event put on by The Tubameisters, which were a creation long ago by Ray Grim.

 


San Antonio is home to two important tourist attractions – the Alamo and the River Walk – which are in competition for the top tourist destination in Texas.

There’s lots of buzz about plans for a new park overlooking the Mission Reach.  The $10 million plan for Confluence Park, to be situated at the confluence of the San Antonio River and San Pedro Creek, will focus on teaching responsible water use and landscaping practices.

Stuart Allen is the project manager.

“Well, it’s a 3-1/2 acre outdoor learning classroom. The intent of the project is to create a destination on the Riverwalk where students and river visitors alike can learn about native plant species and witness a large-scale water catchment system,” Allen said.
