St Lucia Riverwalk (Paseo St Lucia)

St Lucia Riverwalk (Paseo St Lucia)
Overview
Similar to San Antonio’s popular riverwalk across the border in Texas, the Mexican city of Monterrey boasts its own popular esplanade, known as the St. Lucia Riverwalk (Paseo Santa Lucía). The pedestrian walkway, which runs along an artificial river and connects the Macroplaza to Fundidora Park (Parque Fundidora), attracts tourists and locals with its relaxing setting, restaurants, boat rides, murals, and museums.

The Basics
Completed in 2007, the St. Lucia Riverwalk is one of the most popular attractions in Monterrey. The walk stretches 1.5 miles (2.4 kilometers) along a man-made canal that winds through town, from the Macroplaza to Fundidora Park. The path is dotted with arched pedestrian bridges and fountains, including the dynamic Fuente de las Olas (Waves Fountain), and inexpensive riverboat tours are available.

Things to Know Before You Go
Free Wi-Fi is available along the entire length of the St. Lucia Riverwalk.
Fundidora Park, located at the end of the river walk, includes playgrounds, an ice rink, and Sesame Street Park, making it ideal for families.
The walk is fully wheelchair accessible.

How to Get There
The St. Lucia Riverwalk is located in downtown Monterrey, within walking distance of many city hotels. Metered taxis are the easiest way to get around the city, but the walk is also accessible via the Metrorrey subway system; the Zaragoza stop on line 2 services the Macroplaza area. 

When to Get There
The best times to visit Monterrey are during spring (March to May) and fall (October and November). In addition to weekends, the St. Lucia Riverwalk can be especially busy in the evenings, when the water is illuminated and the weather is cooler. Riverboat rides take place throughout the day. 

Exploring the Macroplaza
One of the world’s largest pedestrian plazas, the Macroplaza is a stretch of green space where most of the city's historical monuments, museums, and hotels are located. One of the plaza’s highlights is the 230-foot-tall (70-meter-tall) lighthouse that shines a green light into the night sky. Around the plaza, you’ll find the Monterrey Cathedral, the Mexican History Museum, and the Monterrey Contemporary Art Museum.
