The route begins with an entrance square where is located a first body of water that connects to a channel that symbolizes Atoyac River and takes visitors inside each pavilion where the relationship with the river becomes closer. The first pavilion aims to sensitize the visitor through a deep Angeles Mastretta text about the history and status of the river. In the second pavilion, visitors participate interactively in the path to the river sending positive messages.
