The Westside Creeks Restoration Project includes approximately 3.63 miles of Alazán Creek. Alazán Creek begins at the outlet of Woodlawn Lake Park, at the Josephine Tobin Recreation Center, and meanders near the National Basilica of the Little Flower and through the housing authority’s Alazán Courts. It continues south of Avenida Guadalupe near San Fernando Cemetery until it merges with Apache Creek.
The Battle of Alazán Creek occurred on the banks of Alazán Creek on June 20, 1813 during the Mexican War of Independence between the Republican Army of the North and the Spanish Royalist force.
