There’s lots of buzz about plans for a new park overlooking the Mission Reach.  The $10 million plan for Confluence Park, to be situated at the confluence of the San Antonio River and San Pedro Creek, will focus on teaching responsible water use and landscaping practices.

Stuart Allen is the project manager.

“Well, it’s a 3-1/2 acre outdoor learning classroom. The intent of the project is to create a destination on the Riverwalk where students and river visitors alike can learn about native plant species and witness a large-scale water catchment system,” Allen said.

The San Antonio River Foundation said it’s entering phase two of the capital campaign for this cutting edge, environmentally sustainable educational green space, located in the southern urban core of San Antonio.
