San Pedro Creek Improvements Update

Visit San Antonio staff was treated to tour of the San Pedro Creek Improvements project in downtown San Antonio. The project is a partnership between the San Antonio River Authority and Bexar County, in conjunction with the City of San Antonio, to transform the creek from a concrete-lined drainage ditch into a natural creek habitat and world-class linear park. Visitors and residents alike will connect with this project which will include an amphitheater, public art and a thriving ecosystem, restoring San Antonio’s urban and cultural landscape to what it more than 300 years ago.

The San Pedro Creek Improvements Project will be completed in four phases, with the first phase starting at the tunnel inlet at Santa Rosa Street, near Fox Tech High School. The total length of the project is 2.2 miles, which ends where the San Pedro Creek merges with the Alazán and Apache Creeks at IH-35. Work from the tunnel inlet to Houston Street will be completed in time for the city’s Tricentennial celebration in May 2018.
