Houston, San Antonio mayors throw down over River Walk comments

Posted: Updated:
HOUSTON (FOX 26) -

San Antonio's mayor is not happy with Houston Mayor Annise Parker's "fightin' words" about his city's river walk.

The City of Houston received a national award for the Buffalo Bayou Restoration Project.  Here's what Parker had to say when asked why the bayou has not been turned into a "river walk" type development.

"The river walk is a cement ditch," she said.  "There is no nice way to say it.  Buffalo Bayou is a natural water course."

San Antonio Mayor Julian Castro said there's a little 'river walk envy" behind the comments.

"Mayor Parker is a good mayor and we have a great relationship but it was clear from her comments that Houstonians are a little jealous of the river walk."

He says he invites Parker to lunch on the river walk next time she's in town.
