SAN ANTONIO – Confluence Park in San Antonio is slated to officially open on Jan. 17.
Lake|Flato, the same architectural firm behind redevelopments like the Witte Museum and Pearl Brewery, designed the project.
"With education as its core purpose, Confluence is an intricate teaching tool that will inspire our community to become more involved with the river and practice sustainable habits while gaining a greater understanding of Texas ecotypes," LakeFlato.com posted to its website along with site renderings.
A unique pavilion designed to catch rainwater will be the sole source of water for the entire park, except for sinks and drinking fountains.
Confluence Park’s design includes other eco-friendly features, like a green roof for the Estela Avery Education Center.
"These features allow Confluence Park to be an energy neutral space, eventually giving power back to the electric grid,” according to ConfluenceParkSA.org.
The park will be located at 310 W. Mitchell St. along the path that connects the San Antonio missions.
