There is a new chapter and vision for this courageous and persevering little creek of ours and it’s a historic collaboration that gave Bexar County, the San Antonio River Authority, and the City of San Antonio a common vision and goal.
Together, these partners are restoring San Pedro Creek’s natural environment and creating a world-class linear park—with a purpose that goes well beyond just being beautiful and enjoyable. It combines public art, architectural design, local craft, and historic preservation with engineering, ecosystem restoration, and native landscaping.
It focuses on the creek’s natural beauty, the rich and colorful story of its own history, the cultural identity and traditions of the community around it, while ensuring protection for a growing urban downtown.
The San Pedro Creek Culture Park, located on the western edge of downtown San Antonio not far from The Alamo, exemplifies beauty with purpose, as it serves as vital infrastructure for a growing downtown. In addition to safely conveying flood waters, low impact design elements are improving water quality and natural habitat. With new prosperity, the creek is now a catalyst for economic development.
