A $72 million overhaul — essentially doubling the size of the River Walk — has transformed the dry, weed-choked eyesore north of the River Walk into a 1½-mile manicured waterway. The area has whimsical art, benches and fountains that can be passed on foot or by water taxi en route to attractions upriver.
