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.
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.
