Texas has two river mermaid statues, but cactus-prone San Angelo is an odd place to put one.

Address:
S. Oakes St., San Angelo, TX
Directions:
Southeast side of downtown, near the art museum. Between the Chadbourne and S. Oakes St. bridges across the Concho River. Just off the south bank of the river and next to the Celebration Bridge -- a footbridge across the river.

Mermaid Statue in the Concho River

The mermaid is right near the museum of art in San Angelo, along the waterfront. Great statue -- amazing detail.

The mermaid statue is easy to find along San Angelo's river walk.

Mermaid Statue in the Concho River

Beautiful statue of mermaid curled up on rock on the side of the murky Concho River that flows downtown in San Angelo, TX. Really a beautiful statue in such an unexpected place -- far West Texas, an area more noted for its cactus, rocks, and desert (except along the river lined with pecan trees).
