Olmos Park is an upscale independent municipality located just 4 miles north of Downtown San Antonio. Bordering beautiful Olmos Basin Park, proximity to the large natural space is a big draw for residents of this neighborhood. Frequent visitors to the park rave about the long, scenic trails and well-kept sports fields. The community’s location also makes frequent visits to the San Antonio Zoo an achievable reality for animal lovers. Proximity to the park also makes it simple to make a quick trip to the Witte Museum or the Doseum.
Other nearby attractions include the San Antonio Country Club and the Brackenridge Park Golf Course, both of which provide excellent options for golfers. The San Antonio Country Club in particular is well-regarded for its well-kept course and impressive clubhouse. And while there is little commercial development within Olmos Park itself, just outside its western border lies a number of shopping and dining options. Prospective buyers who count themselves among the ranks of San Antonio’s foodies will be excited to be so close to so many great eateries, including the Chez Vatel Bistro and Yaya’s Thai.
The neighborhood itself offers plenty of charming sights within its borders. A walk through the neighborhood reveals quality touches throughout, including hand-crafted gas-style lights lining the streets and picturesque large estates surrounded by wrought-iron gates and stone masonry fences. As an independent municipality, residents enjoy the protection of their very own police and fire departments, as well as an accessible and responsive city government. The city is served by the Alamo Heights Independent School District. Given how peaceful and relaxing the lifestyle offered by Olmos Park is, it's easy to forget that it's located so close to the center of the city, with all of the convenience that that provides.
