New San Antonio Riverwalk
We went for a walk on the new part of the San Antonio Riverwalk. This added a couple miles of walkway on both sides of the river. At the moment it is used mostly by locals who walk, jog, and bike along the river, but I suspect major residential and commercial development will occur. This project ends at the old Pearl Brewery where there are a number of buildings devoted to offices, stores, and restaurants. A new four story parking garage is nearly completed. The brewery corporation still exists, they just don't brew beer here any more. No telling what is to become of their 19th Century brewery building, but some use will be made of this historic structure.
