San Pedro Springs Park
1415 San Pedro Avenue
Dive into HistorySan Pedro Springs is located just northwest of downtown San Antonio. The springs were a gathering place for native Americans (the Coahuiltecan Indians called the village located there Yanaguana) and later were a gathering place of a different sort in the 19th century—first as the center of an amusement park and then a beer garden. At the end of the century, the springs dried up as water was diverted to other uses, but the park and springs reopened for public use in 2000. Now it provides a popular place to cool off on hot summer days once again.
