Welcome to the San Pedro Creek Culture Park

The first segment of the San Pedro Creek Culture Park (Phase 1.1) begins with the San Pedro Creek Flood Tunnel Inlet where you’ll find the stunning Plaza de Fundación and its incredible “Rain from the Heavens” public art installation. Custom tile work adorns the surrounding 12 Generational Benches of the Plaza de Fundación as well as at various other locations throughout the Culture Park. Also found in Phase 1.1 are four large-scale tile murals and other artwork that represent the history and culture of this historic creek.

The Plaza de Fundación invites visitors to cool their feet in the waters of San Pedro Creek. Visitors may enjoy shallow wading through the ankle deep waters of the Plaza de Fundación, enjoying the creek water as they contemplate the history of our community in the beautiful surroundings of the Culture Park and modern-day downtown San Antonio. Swimming is not allowed in any location of the San Pedro Creek Culture Park per city code section 22-87. The San Pedro Creek is urban creek environment where there is a risk of pollutants from non-treated stormwater entering into the creek when it rains and remaining in the water for some time after the rain event. Although the water quality is perfect for fish, plants and other aquatic species, it is not fit for drinking or swallowing.
