​SAN ANTONIO - First conceived in 2007, Confluence Park will be an educational celebration of water "[bringing] something beautiful and dynamic to the South Side," says District 3 Councilwoman Rebecca Viagran. 

"The San Antonio River Authority is able to reach a number of students each year, but there's no meeting place, no classroom, no facility that they can use to teach," says Estela Avery, San Antonio River Foundation Executive Director.

The teaching tool's centerpiece will be a large pavilion made of formed concrete that funnels rainwater into a site-wide water catchment system.

There will be three other pavilions around the park working as distinct gathering places. Any energy needed by the park will be generated through a solar array.

Confluence Park is expected to open in 2017.​
