Zona Cultural/San Pedro Creek is a unique district in the western part of downtown San Antonio that encompasses 44 contiguous blocks and includes San Pedro Creek, Main Plaza, Military Plaza, San Fernando Cathedral, Market Square, Centro De Artes and the Alameda Theater, among dozens of other institutions and art installations. Considered the birthplace of San Antonio, the district serves as a symbol of our city’s shared history and modern culture.
The mission of Zona Cultural/San Pedro Creek is to support, develop and link concentrations of cultural, historic, commercial and entertainment experiences authentic to San Antonio. Zone Cultural/San Pedro Creek is where creative lifestyles, business, and education are connected and celebrated, and where residents and visitors engage with history and the continuing evolution of the culturally blended community.
Improvements to streets and infrastructure within Zona Cultural/San Pedro Creek will help promote access to this historic district and allow it to continue to serve as a center for culture, art and commerce, allowing San Antonio to preserve its unique identity among American cities for generations to come.
Preserving and improving the Zona Cultural and the completion of the upcoming San Pedro Creek project will be transformational for the area. The Project will include improved curbs, sidewalks, bike lanes, streetscapes, street lights and signals, drainage improvements, and bridges will improve mobility and safety. Zone Cultural/San Pedro Creek streets project will produce a 50 percent increase in market value of properties within a half mile of Market Square. Generates nearly $2 million in new annual property tax revenue for the City of San Antonio.
