Texas' history is shaped by our rivers. In San Antonio, the Yanaguana River, now known as the San Antonio River, is the heart of the community. Fed by the ancient springs of the Edwards Aquifer, San Antonio's earliest inhabitants depended on the river as they shaped and settled the land. Today, the river continues to shape our history. Everything we love about San Antonio - Fiesta, the Spurs, tacos, the Missions, our vibrant communities - all Run on Water.
We recently partnered with San Antonio Water Systems (SAWS) to unveil the newest water-themed mural in San Antonio's south side. The artwork is a celebration of San Antonio's history and it's deep connection to water, designed by Cruz Ortiz.
