Bexar County and SARA, in coordination with the City of San Antonio, are transforming San Pedro Creek as a cultural park to reflect its place in our cultural history, improve its function in flood control, revitalize natural habitat and water quality, and catalyze economic development. The cultural park will begin at the flood control tunnel inlet near Fox Tech High School and wind through the western side of downtown to the creek’s confluence with the Alazan and Apache Creeks. This historic and once flourishing creek flows behind the Christopher Columbus Italian Society Hall, past the Alameda Theater, Spanish Governor’s Palace, City of San Antonio and Bexar County Offices, past urban residential housing, and an emerging arts district. It then meanders south of downtown through primarily residential neighborhoods before flowing into the San Antonio River. The project includes 4 miles of trails and 11 acres of landscaped area and will remove 30 acres and 38 adjacent structures from the 100-year flood plain. The San Pedro Creek Improvements Project is divided into four construction phases. Phase 1 begins at the tunnel inlet near the Christopher Columbus Italian Society and Fox Tech High School and ends at Cesar E. Chavez Boulevard. Phase 1 will be completed by May 2018 in celebration of the 300th anniversary of the City of San Antonio.

 Establish an intimate scale relationship between people and the creek, and provide for the simultaneous movement of water and people that is safe and pleasurable.

 Restore, repurpose, and reuse the existing channel infrastructure, respecting its historical context and being good stewards of the funds provided for restoration.

 Recreate an aquatic habitat to nourish life and incorporate nature into our urban environment. Provide places that support diverse activities, offer pockets of surprise and connect with intersecting streets, paths, and transportation routes.

 Celebrate San Pedro Creek’s layered history by telling its story with an authentic voice.
