Situated on the northwest side of El Paso is the neighborhood of Remcon. This quiet community of mostly single family homes is located around five miles west of the Franklin Mountains and gives residents wonderful views and a location for hiking and sightseeing just down the road. In terms of other neighborhoods, Remcon is closely bordered by Lakehurst to the north, South Belvidere to the east, Interstate 10 to the west, and Resler Canyon off to the distant south.
Parents have at least two choices on each level of public schooling. Among the elementary school options are Rosa Guerrero, Roberts, Burnham Wood Charter School, and Da Vinci. Da Vinci also offers a middle school as well. The other two middle school offerings come from Dr. Hornedo and Lincoln. High school education is covered by Franklin or Coronado High. Two libraries serve the area, either Westside or Dorris Van Doren. Should college be an option, El Paso County Community College is near, with the University of Texas El Paso not too far away.
Attractions abound in Remcon, whether residents favor the outdoors or the indoors. Numerous parks dot the landscape of the neighborhood and surrounding area. Lyndon Baines Johnson Park is a popular spot, and Thorn or White Spur Parks are other local areas to enjoy the fresh air. There are also some great tours in the area. The Wyler Aerial Tramway is a few miles west, while two other tours are even closer, namely Native Trails Tours and Around and About Tours.
Golfing is available at El Paso Country Club, or catching a movie at Cinemark West is a nice alternative. Crossroads Village or Airway Junction Shopping Center also give residents numerous options for shopping. Del Sol Medical Center is the closest stop for medical emergencies.
