Voters Pass Proposition 2 - New Bike Trails Are on the Way!

10 May 2015

Voters approved a proposition to continue building the Howard W. Peak Greenway Trail System in its city-wide election held on May 9. With 100% of polls reporting, 62,305 voted for San Antonio Parks Expansion Proposition 2 while 20,876 voted against it.

The proposition continues an existing 0.125 percent city sales tax to earmark $80 million for the expansion. The Greenway system has already 46 miles of bike/hike trails that follow along major creeks and rivers, namely Leon Creek, Salado Creek, Medina River, and San Antonio River.

In addition, these new trails are to be added:

Apache Creekway (north of Stone Oak area)
Alazan Creekway (runs west of downtown, connects to San Pedro Creekway)
Culebra Creekway (runs near Seaworld area)
Huebner Creekway (runs long Huebner, flows into Salado Creek at Salado Creek Greenway north)

Mission Reach

Lorence Creekway (connects McAllister Park to Lorence Creekway)
Martinez Creekway (connects Woodlawn Park to Alazan Creekway)
Olmos Creekway (connects Jackson-Keller Rd. area to Brackenridge Park that in turns connects to Riverwalk)
San Pedro Creekway (connects Alazan Creekway to Mission Reach)

The Lorence creek runs from McAllister Park to Blossom Park located on Heimer Road. It is unknown how far up this creek the greenway will run.

Another major piece will be the San Pedro Creekway that will connect Mission Reach to Alazan Creekway located in areas west of downtown.

Finally, the path at Southside Lions Park is to be extended to Mission Reach where it will be connected to the Medina River Preserve Greenway.
