River Mural Mosaic

Designed to be a symbol of unity for the city of San Marcos, the eclectic River Mural Mosaic was restored by the Leadership San Marcos Class of 2012 along the river bank at City Park.

San Marcos River

San Marcos is a natural beauty and the most intriguing feature is her river. The San Marcos River bubbles to life from hundreds of springs right in the city's center. Always a refreshing 72 degrees, the river is enjoyed year ‘round. Grab a tube and go for a float. Rent a kayak or stand-up paddle and navigate its length. Bring your snorkel and discover its depth. Or just bring a picnic and soak up some sun.
