San Pedro Creek at Christmas

San Pedro Creek at Christmas – The Frost Tower seen from the San Pedro Creek in San Antonio during Christmas time. We like the colorful art tile mural that tell the story of Pedro Creek and its history along the new boardwalk in San Antonio. This was during Christmas time and the boardwalk street lights were wrapped in colorful lights and the water had these ribbons of light changing colors along with other seasons holiday lights all along the creek. This is considered a linear park and the main focus is on the creek’s natural beauty, the rich and colorful story of its own history, the cultural identity and traditions of the community around it, while ensuring protection for a growing urban downtown. This board walk has the first phase completed there are still other sections yet to be completed.
