The water wall can be found just a few feet from a funky art nook on Commerce Street that includes La Zona, an outdoor venue programmed by Centro San Antonio, and the Gao Brothers’ gleaming silver sculpture “Miss Mao Trying to Poise Herself at the Top of Lenin’s Head.” The area also is home to Texas Public Radio’s headquarters and the historic Alameda Theater.
“STREAM” is part of the just-completed first phase of the $300 million creek project, which is funded by Bexar County and overseen by the San Antonio River Authority. It is designed to spotlight the history and culture of the area while removing 30 acres of property from a 100-year flood plain. The first part of Phase 1 opened in May 2018. Three more phases remain. The second phase is under construction now.
The new segment will open to the public with a two-day celebration this weekend. Festivities throughout the park will include a lighting ceremony and a performance by Urban-15 Friday and a full day of performances and activities on Saturday.
