The San Pedro Creek Culture Park invites the people of San Antonio to reconnect with a place of great historical and cultural significance.

Public art, cultural programming, and artistic design features presented in the park express what is authentic about San Antonio’s culture today and explores the historical significance of the creek through a contemporary art lens. This unique site provides an opportunity for artists to explore a wide variety of project types, distinguishing it from other cultural amenities in the city.

The program includes permanent or integrated works of art, temporary installations, performance art, and special events. It is supported by the San Pedro Creek Arts & Culture Alliance, a cohort of local artists, arts organizations, and businesses interested in the development of cultural opportunities at the park. Public art and cultural programming is managed by San Pedro Creek Arts, a program of the San Antonio River Authority.

Artistic Design Features

Formed from pierced stainless steel panels, transforms the utilitarian San Pedro Creek flood control tunnel inlet into a dynamic artistic installation. Water cascades over the perforated panels that are backlit at night, forming the pattern of the night sky as it appeared to the founders on May 5, 1718. This historical appearance of the cosmos was documented for the San Pedro Creek Culture Park by the staff of San Antonio College’s Scobee Planetarium.
