Cathedral Park Walk
The Cathedral Park Meditation Walk is an opportunity to connect with God through the magnificence of his creation. Cathedral Park is sacred ground; in this place God’s spirit lingers and beckons visitors to partake of his presence made palpable through his creation.

The Walk includes an introduction and eight stops, each of which gives some background information and offers opportunities to enjoy the sights and sounds of God’s great and bountiful creation in this place.
Stop 7: The pump house, bridge, and rock basin. All are part of the Olmos Basin that supplied water to early San Antonio. This area was once a sacred site for Native Americans and was a place of spiritual and physical refreshment.
