Bexar County and the San Antonio River Authority, in coordination with the City of San Antonio, are partnering to transform San Pedro Creek to reflect its place in our cultural history, improve its function in flood control, revitalize natural habitat and water quality, and catalyze economic development.
The project will start at the tunnel inlet near Fox Tech High School and wind through the western side of downtown to the creek’s confluence with the Alazan and Apache Creeks. The project includes 4 miles of trails and 11 acres of landscaped area and will remove 30 acres and 38 adjacent structures from the 100-year flood plain.

Once the entire project is complete, it will encompass 2.2 miles of revitalized creek and will be a world-class linear park that celebrates our community's rich culture and heritage.
