Actually, I'm not really sure which came first, Riverside Park or 'Riverwalk" in San Antonio. Makes little difference, both are interesting and welcome breaks form the cities they are located in.

I regularly walk through the park as part of my commute and I never tire of changing scenery. The dramatic mist and frostiness of a crisp winters morning to the gentle relaxing breeze of a summers evening. There is oodles of space for all groups from walkers to footballers to the family groups. Pitch and putt golf course for a... More

Riverside Park is very local to me, so a very nice place for a walk, looking at nature and feeding the ducks.

Ideal location to stretch the legs if you are straying at the nearby Holiday Inn and also great for views of the numerous cruise ships berthed nearby. Remember to take your camera. There are some tea rooms nearby as well as a kiddies play area.

Needs to have a tea shop in the park!, But there is a pub at the Mansbridge end for refreshments, and sometimes coffe at the Woodmill.

If life has been hectic, busy and you are exsisting as only a cog in the machine, then ladies when you are walking along the waters edge watching the coressing movement of fish darting though the clear, clean river water as the gently weaving water reads seem to hypnotize your senses and bring your self back to real you, the...
