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.

Austin is a fast growing city with all of it sky-scrapers built in the last ten year so it is has a modern cityscape in downtown and is constantly changing for good or bad. Much of the growth of the city growth has been the large number of high tech companies which have move here to the city in the last five year or so.
