Riverwalk San Antonio

The San Antonio Riverwalk takes a formerly working riverfront that had fallen into disuse and

makes it easy to get to. What began as a WPA flood-control project is now a network of walkways

along the banks of  the San Antonio River, one story beneath approximately 5 miles of downtown

It is built on the former site of SNR-300, a nuclear power plant that never went

constructed for the plant have been integrated into the park and its attractions,

including the cooling tower, which features a swing ride and a climbing wall. The

park also features four restaurants, eight bars, and six hotels.
