The community of Camelot is in northeastern San Antonio. This neighborhood is bounded by Walzem Road on the north, Eisenhauer Road on the south, I-410/I-35 on the west, and Midcrown Drive on the east. Its proximity to the I-410/I-35 Loop makes it easy for residents to access all areas of San Antonio.
Many homes in the area were built in the 1960s, when the area underwent its first residential development. Ranch-style homes are prevalent, and residences built in more recent years are modern two-story dwellings. Lots here are nicely landscaped, with mature trees.
Schools in the area include Camelot Elementary School, Park Village Elementary School, White Middle School, and Theodore Roosevelt Senior High.
Windsor Park Shopping Center, at one time a busy shopping mall, was located directly within the community, at the intersection of I-35 and Walzem Road. This property has since been purchased and is in the process of being renovated by a web hosting company, Rackspace. This company plans to use the building for what it calls its tech town.
Camelot residents who are nature lovers will enjoy the Salado Creek Greenway. It is located just west of I-410/I-35 and offers area visitors miles of trails for dog walking, jogging, cycling, skating, or bird-watching. James Park attaches to the Salado Creek Trail on the southern end and features ball fields, picnicking facilities, wooded areas, and excellent wildlife viewing. Robert L. B. Tobin Park connects to the Greenway on the northern end.
Fort Sam Houston, or simply Fort Sam, is also not far. It is located just south of Salado Valley. This military post is primarily used for medical training and support. The U.S. Army Medical Department Center and School is the largest health care training center in the world.
