San Antonio is industry and tourism centre. In San Antonio there is a fortress of Alamo — a symbol of finding the Texas independence. The city is a popular vacation spot for the tourists and about three million tourists annually arrive to the city. San Antonio is located on the river with the same name. But San Antonio starts the initiative to expand the sizes of the river channel, because for many years the north of the channel became a place where many will go only if they lose their way.

The place is overload with restaurants and retail shops and is not funny place for visiting. That’s why a overhaul is required, which will take about $72 million expenses. The main work will consist in doubling the sizes of the River Walk to ensure the undisturbed walk of the visitors of the new manicured waterway made with unusual art style. benches and fountains will be available for those who wish to rest and water taxis will be there to transfer the visitors to the desired attractions.

The River Walk museum will connect the tourists, who wish to take a rest from the busy market and business center, with the world of art and the Pearl Brewer. There will be also a path for pedestrian walks and for cyclists, which will lead to the Brackenridge Park and the zoo.

The River Channel will become real “artwork” according the words of Phil Hardberger, who started this big initiation. “The river, as it changes character, will assume different shapes and different personalities.”

The River Walk place built in 1940s is a famous place for tourists to visit, but after these changes local people how it will become one of the most visited and preferable vacation spots in Texas.

Because of the location of the park, now the visitors will have the opportunity to take a water taxi which will take them from the downtown up to this wonderful place for rest, or to feel the upstream and downstream move of boats, or just to walk on the paved paths. There are also trees and flowers lines on the River Walk to make the place even more attractive and natural and a small bridge connects two towers of the the art museum.
