Quintana Community Apartments for Rent(hide neighborhood information)
The Quintana Community is located east of Lackland Air force Base in southwestern San Antonio. Most of this area was built between 1940 and 1969, much of it going up during World War II. That might explain some of the street names like Hangar Avenue and Decamp Hall Avenue. Quintana Road, on the western end, is largely industrial and borders several railroad tracks.
The northern end of the Quintana Community is made up of a few working farms nudged up against warehouses and trucking transport firms. In the south, single-family homes and apartments take up most of the neighborhood with businesses along the New Laredo Highway and Somerset Road. The streets and yards are filled with mature trees, and aside from the northern end and these major roads, the area is pedestrian friendly. The VAT Metropolitan Transit provides frequent service to the community.
South San Pedro Park borders Quintana Road and offers a soccer field, a playground, and a basketball court. The park is built on land used for a U.S.O. Center during World War II. On the northern end of the neighborhood are the larger Normoyle Park and its community center. Tennis and basketball courts, lighted softball and baseball fields, and a skate park are all on-site. In the summer an outdoor swimming pool is available.
George E. Kelly Elementary and Lowell Middle School are both to the north. San Antonio High School is on the eastern side of Normoyle Park. Community College Alamo is on Quintana Road, within walking distance. South San Antonio Baptist Church and St. Joseph’s Church, which has its own school, are to the south. Most shops, services, and restaurants are along the New Laredo Highway and Quintana Road. H.E.B. Foods and the Cattleman’s Beer Garden restaurant are within walking distance.
