A scenic area of northwest San Antonio, Shavano Heights is a part of the city of Shavano Park. Many around San Antonio associate the Shavano area with lush trees, wide roads, and young professionals. Indeed, each household in the city made $108,306 in annual income as of the 2000 census, an impressive feat for a city of only 1,754 people. Also according to that census, 92.87 percent of the population is white.
Even smaller than the miniscule Shavano Park is Shavano Heights, a luxurious gated community with upper-income housing. The entire neighborhood has well-maintained sidewalks, along with scenic plants and trees. Completing the look is a series of black 20-MPH signs and steep driveways.
This somewhat-aristocratic community has no bus stops in or around it. Nonetheless, bikers, joggers, and dog walkers are a common sight. Activities in the area tend to be private, and communal pools, gatherings, and parks are nonexistent. The neighbors of Shavano Heights like to keep to themselves.
Shavano Heights is fairly close to the University of Texas at San Antonio; the wealthy Dominion neighborhood, which is home to various celebrities; and Huebner Oaks, which is an exquisite place to shop, eat, and take in a movie.
Many of the Shavano Heights residents send their children to the elite private school TMI: The Episcopal School of Texas or to the nearby Tom C. Clark High School. For gym membership, the luxurious Spectrum Athletic Club and Lifetime Fitness serve the affluent residents of Shavano Heights.
