The second oldest park in the United States, San Pedro Springs Park is a city gem. The park is located on land reserved for public use by the Spanish government in the 18th century. Historically, people have gathered around the springs and creek that originate here for some 12,000 years. Hunter-gatherers found water, food, and rock to fashion weapons, and Spanish explorers first established their camps here in the late 17th century. Today, San Pedro Springs Park retained these historical uses and restored landscape and structural features that are important reminders of the park’s long and interesting history. It’s a great place to walk, hike, bike, swim and enjoy the great outdoors!
