"Paseo del Rio" Riverwalk & Riverwalk Mall Tip by Djinn76

Riverwalk & Riverwalk Mall, San Antonio: 89 reviews and 160 photos


Following the terrific flooding of 1921, some engineering works had to be done to prevent further deaths. A report recommended filling and paving the river bend but many protests convinced the municipal leaders to view the river as an asset. By 1941, the River Walk was completed. This is now a source of pride for San Antonio and one of its most unique attractions.
