Pearl Turning Basin at nIght

Pearl Turning Basin

Pearl Brewery

With barge traffic continuing to the Pearl Brewery, the River Foundation helped fund a functional yet beautiful turning basin at the end of the new Museum Reach. With cascading waterfalls and lush landscaping, the basin is a teeming habitat for fish, turtles and birds that are drawn to the marshes and moving water. The wide basin serves as a drop-off point for visitors to the Pearl and a focal point as barges change course.


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.
