Featuring representations of generations and neighborhoods throughout San Antonio, this mural tells the story of how San Pedro Springs brought forth life, growth, and diversity to our community. The left (the West) and the right (the East) sides of the mural come together, literally and figuratively, at its center. On the outer edges, the jaguar and the anhinga represent the origin story of the springs while the mother and father represent the passing down of cultural heritage through storytelling.
