An oxbow is a long
crescent shaped lake formed when a river abandons a meander and changes
course. The San Antonio Oxbow is approximately 40 acres and provides
excellent wildlife habitat for waterfowl, wading shore birds, song birds,
semi-aquatic mammals, amphibians and fish species.
Follow this path at your own risk. The
walk to and from the Open Space is about one hour long. The public is not
permitted past the fence in the Open Space area, but a bench for observing
wildlife is available near the fence.
