The archaeological testing and monitoring reported here was conducted within the boundaries of San Pedro Springs Park, San Antonio, Bexar County, Texas, between January and October 2002. The park is listed in the National Register of Historic Places (41BX19) and contains significant prehistoric and historic archaeological resources. This investigation was conducted under Texas Antiquities Permit No. 2776 and was performed for the City of San Antonio Parks and Recreation Department. This report presents the results of archaeological testing and monitoring of areas to be impacted by park improvements. The improvements included the restoration and landscaping of a mid-nineteenth century structure; construction of a new playground; modifications to an existing playground; planting of trees; and the installation of a sprinkler system. This work resulted in the verification of a mid-nineteenth-century date for the Block House and the identification of the location of two historic trash deposits and a burned rock concentration.
