20 apartments for rent in Forest Oak, San Antonio, TX
The Forest Oak neighborhood sits just off of Nacogdoches Road, encircled by Valley View Lane. Two-story dwellings tower above the flatlands and partially hide behind privacy fences. Beautiful lawns sprawl neatly in front of the houses, while trees grace the open expanses in Texas Plains style. This family-oriented neighborhood is beautiful and possesses a definite desert charm.
Salado Creek twists through the southeast corner of the neighborhood, along with Feeder Trail, a legendary Texas cattle-blazing trail that helped change the Southwest into the society that it is today. Salado Creek is the site of two Texas battles: the 1813 Battle of Rosillo and the 1842 Battle of Salado Creek. Today this creek is maintained with recycled water, is about 38 miles long, and winds from northern Bexar County to the San Antonio River close to Buena Vista.
You can either take the Salado Creek and the Feeder Trails south to Robert Tobin Park, or north to Ladybird Johnson Park. While LBJ Park offers a softball complex and an excellent hiking trail, Robert Tobin Park, which includes the Salado Creek Greenway, offers bike trails, statues and memorials, picnic tables and brick walkways.
