    Your Generosity Has Changed Your World

    Since 2003, our Foundation has raised over $38 million dollars from individuals and organizations in our community. That money was reinvested to enhance your San Antonio River experience. Our project partners —San Antonio River Authority, Bexar CountyCity of San Antonio, and US Army Corps of Engineers— have invested over $384 million in river improvements for our community. Together, our investments have added over $1.5 billion in economic impact through adjacent private investment and development.

    Thank You for Your Continued Support

    I-35 Overpass near Camden Street

    It’s hard not to smile at Philadelphia artist Donald Lipski’s school of giant fish swimming through the sky beneath the interstate overpass. The cluster of 25 seven-foot-long creatures of hand-painted fiberglass resin are anatomically correct models of long-eared sunfish, native to the river. Impressive by day and stunningly lit from within at night, the glowing fish are a beacon from blocks away, adding color and levity to a once neglected downtown area. A 26th fish is on display in The DoSeum, San Antonio's Museum for Kids, offering an up-close view of the installation’s vibrant detailing.


    COMMISSIONED PUBLIC ART
    The San Antonio River Foundation commissioned and funded public artworks for the benefit of our community and in support of our partners in the $384M San Antonio River Improvements Project. All works along the Mission Reach have been donated to the City of San Antonio's public art collection in perpetuity.


    our special thanks to XXXX and XXXX XXXXXXX for supporting this art installation.

    PEDAL in the PARK

    San Antonio Bike Share is teaming up with San Antonio River Foundation and Bill Simons, a Professional Tour Guide of San Antonio, to recreate their annual Pedal in the Park event. In previous years, Pedal in the Park was a conglomeration of various cyclists gathering at Confluence Park for a ride to Mission Concepción with the sole purpose to encourage local ridership. This year Pedal in the Park has morphed into a social distanced fundraiser to help maintain the B Cycle docking stations on the Mission Reach. For only $23 you’ll be challenged to complete the 17-mile Mission Trail over the course of a month and you’ll have access to a custom made UC Places audio tour.

    Not only will your registration fee help maintain the B Cycle docking stations on the Mission Reach, you’ll know more about the city’s largest ecological restoration site, the Mission Trail. The UC Places audio tour is based on GPS so it will queue up fun facts about the San Antonio River, its wildlife, native plants, public art portals and the San Antonio Missions as you approach each point of interest.

    The Pedal in the Park Challenge is open to all bicycles between October 11 – November 11. Don’t have a bicycle? Your registration fee will include a one-month B Cycle membership. Once you register, you’ll be able to log your trips and times so you can complete the “course” at your leisure.

    Sign up for the Pedal in the Park Challenge at SanAntonioBikeShare.org/PedalChallenge today!

    If you have questions on this race email Alicia, San Antonio Bike Share Digital Engagement Coordinator directly at aliciamspence@yahoo.com or call San Antonio Bike Share Customer Service at 210-281-0101, Monday – Sunday between 9am-6pm
