Riley Robinson

Near Mission Espada Dam

Inspired in part by the clean lines of Scandinavian design, an art bench by Riley Robinson can be found near Mission Parkway, south of the Espada Dam. The bench is made of a single piece of galvanized steel folded into a shaded bench form. Cut into the steel are images of native plants and the historic name for the San Antonio River—Yanaguana. As the sun passes overhead, the images on the bench form shadows across the trail.


The San Antonio River Foundation commissioned and funded public artworks for the benefit of our community and in support of our partners in the $384M San Antonio River Improvements Project. All works along the Mission Reach have been donated to the City of San Antonio’s public art collection in perpetuity.
