Kayakers on the Mission Reach Paddling Trail

As part of our commitment to safe, clean, enjoyable creeks and rivers, the San Antonio River Authority (River Authority) offers free park programming throughout our four-county service district in an effort to promote our parks and trails and forge meaningful connections to area creeks and rivers.

Throughout the COVID-19 pandemic, the River Authority’s parks and trails have remained open, providing important recreational opportunities along the San Antonio River. Our Recreation and Park Programming staff has produced a video series to provide answers to their most popular recreation questions. The next video on the series features the first of a two-part paddling tour along the San Antonio River Walk available in English and Spanish!

También ofrecemos el video en español como parte de nuestro esfuerzo para alcanzar a nuestra comunidad hispanohablante.

***In accordance to CDC guidelines during the COVID-19 pandemic, mask wearing and social distancing are strongly encouraged while on the trails.***
