Description

The not-so-famous parts of the San Antonio River have been (and are being) transformed over the last decade from a trapezoidal urban drainage ditch into a restored ecosystem and vital public amenity. The planning and public participation of architects, landscape architects, engineering consultants, public officials, and the Army Corp of Engineers has been key in creating the extension of the "idea" of the world famous Riverwalk across the 15 mile project length of the river, from its headwaters to the southern city limits. Come listen to Hightower, Co-chair of the San Antonio River Oversight Committee, explore the many factors that weigh into the continuing transformation of this Texas landmark!
