East Pyron Apartments for Rent(hide neighborhood information)
South of San Antonio just off I-37 is the East Pyron neighborhood. Steeped in history dating back to the early 18th Century, it’s one of the most interesting neighborhoods in the metropolitan area.
The centerpiece of the neighborhood is the Mission at San Jose Church. The area is overseen by the U.S. Park Service. Visitors can tour the historic buildings and visit the church. Not only can visitors have a history lesson, they can also enjoy the park’s natural habitat which has been preserved, including the streams.
For families just looking to spend the day playing in the park, Mission County Park is just a short drive away and has something for all family members. Three baseball fields and two soccer fields are there for those who want to play. Three pavilions are perfect spots for a family picnic or community event.
Students in East Pyron attend schools in the San Antonio Independent School district. Elementary students attend Charles C. Ball Elementary, named for an educator. The school opened in 1964. Middle school students attend Connell Middle School which feeds into Highlands High School.
The area is a reflection of its rich Hispanic culture. Restaurants serving authentic dishes and shops with jewelry that reflect the culture line the streets. For moms who need to take care of the family, a Walmart Supercenter is just a short drive away.
A few miles away is downtown San Antonio, one of the state’s most scenic cities. Families can spend a Saturday on the famous River Walk which spans the downtown area for an economical adventure.
