We jogged here several mornings near the La Villita section of the Riverwalk. The special feature is that the grassy amphitheatre seating is across the river from the crescent shaped stage, and you have the ambiance of the Riverwalk. SA is so charming.

This theater is open air. It is on the river. I mean on the river. The San Antonio river separates the seating from the stage. The seating is stone and grass. If you are going then wear clothes you don't mind getting a little dirty...More

This is a wonderful amphitheater on the San Antonio Riverwalk that is perfectly situated for a rest in the beautiful weather while you often watch local entertainment and river barges float by. So much fun for the whole family!

This would a very neat place to watch a small show. With the seating on one side of the canal and the stage on the other, it had a uniquely beautiful setting for entertainment.

What a beautiful setting for outdoor entertainment. I may have to return to San Antonio to see a performance since we didn't have the opportunity during our visit.

This theater is integrated beautifully into the Riverwalk. The stage is on one side, while the stepped amphitheater seating is on the other. There were no shows ongoing during our visit, but the site was wonderful to explore.

Does anyone remember the pictures? This is where they film Miss Congeniality. Nice little place along the river to watch the show if you get the chance. If not you can at least take a boat cruise past it or go sit and relax watching...More

I have sat in the top rows and lower rows. It becomes a personal preference. If you like looking down into the barges then I would get the higher rows. The floor seats are 3 feet above river level. The river is only about 25... More
