A Memorial to San Antonio lives lost to COVID-19

The Deep in Our Hearts COVID-19 Memorial is located at the corner of E. Market and S. Alamo Streets in Downtown San Antonio, the future site of Civic Park (3 blocks south of the Alamo; directly west of the Convention Center; directly north of Hemisfair).

As of the end of April 2021, almost 3,500 San Antonians have been lost during the pandemic due to COVID-19. Family members of those who have died are invited to write name(s), prayers, attach photos, bring flowers, etc. at the memorial site (bring your own Sharpie).
