Expanded River Walk an artful avenue for visitors

SAN ANTONIO — For decades, the channel of the San Antonio River north of the popular restaurants and retail shops downtown was overgrown and blighted — the kind of place tourists went only if they made a wrong turn. But not anymore.

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.
