Crownhill Park is a small residential area tucked behind major car dealerships such as Benson Honda and the North Park Automotive. It is close to San Antonio’s largest airport and offers easy access to shopping centers such as the North Star Mall, located across the highway in Shearer Hills/Ridgeview.
Houses in the residential pockets were built with modern, American-style architecture. Many have been constructed of red and are situated on small lots. The neighborhood has speed bumps on the roads to slow any traffic and help protect pedestrians, cyclists, and children at play. Though close to the airport and a major city highway, this neighborhood manages to maintain a cozy atmosphere.
Crownhill Park is located in the 78216 ZIP code. Its northern border is a horizontal line following Downshire Drive. Jones Maltsberger Road slopes to make the eastern boundary as it intersects with Interstate Highway 410/Loop 410, the southern border. The La Plaza Del Norte Shopping Center acts as the western boundary. This shopping mall is home to popular retail chains such as Game Stop and Bealls. North Star Mall, down the highway from La Plaza Del Norte, contains department stores and specialty boutiques.
A major point of interest in this area is the San Antonio International Airport. Hosting flights from all major airlines and with direct access to cities in Mexico, the airport is a major draw for locals and tourists alike. Among hotels close to Crownhill Park is a Holiday Inn Express. Well-established restaurants like the Pappadeaux Seafood Kitchen provide good food served quickly for locals and visitors alike.
