Phase 1 Construction Now Underway

San Pedro Creek has been a place of natural beauty and human occupation for millennia. Bexar County/San Antonio originated in this vicinity with the founding of Mission San Antonio de Valero. This history will now be restored and shared with new generations through the San Pedro Creek Improvements Project.

Bexar County and the San Antonio River Authority, in coordination with the City of San Antonio, have undertaken this project to transform San Pedro Creek from a concrete-lined drainage ditch into a natural creek habitat and world-class linear park. The project will improve the creek's function in flood control, revitalize natural habitat and water quality, and catalyze economic development.

The start of San Pedro Creek's Phase 1 is located at the tunnel inlet at Santa Rosa Street, near Fox Tech High School. The project limits go from the tunnel inlet to the north and end at the confluence of the Alazán and Apache Creeks at IH-35 to the south.

When the project's four phases are fully realized, the features of the San Pedro Creek Improvements Project will include:

  • 2 miles of channel
  • 4 miles of paseos
  • 11 acres of landscaped area
  • 30 acres removed from the floodplain
  • 8 street bridges replaced
  • 6 new pedestrian bridges
  • 6 existing brides rehabilitated
  • 60,000 linear feet of new walls
  • 3 new channel gates
  • 1 new community amphitheater
