We take this job very seriously. Maintenance is critical to the upkeep of the River Walk so that it will be a beautiful and pleasant place when visitors and locals alike walk along the river, sit at a riverside restaurant or take a ride on a river barge.

The San Antonio River Authority will be draining a portion of the San Antonio River by the Museum Reach for preventative maintenance on the Lock and Dam close to Brooklyn Avenue.
