Sierra Vista Apartments for Rent(hide neighborhood information)
In northern San Antonio, Texas, north of Interstate 35, is the small community of Sierra Vista. This neighborhood is situated just south of Nacogdoches Road/FM 2252. The Whispering Hills apartment homes are located to the east. Other neighboring communities include Valencia, Northern Heights, El Dorado, and Woodstone. The zip code for Sierra Vista is 78240, and it falls within Bexar County.
The Sierra Vista area is vastly residential, but nearby FM 2252 offers a smattering of commercial offerings, such as a Blockbuster Video, Sonic Drive-In, McDonald’s, Pizza Hut, and an H-E-B market. Pet owners will be happy to be close to a pet hospital and puppy salon.
Among the area’s major attractions is Morgan’s Wonderland, located little more than a mile south, along the interstate. Designed specifically for people with special needs (although anyone can join in the fun), this 25-acre park is coined as “the World’s First Ultra Accessible Family Fun Park.”
Sierra Vista residents also enjoy close proximity to many area parks, including Comanche Lookout Park, McClain Park, Friesenhahn Park, and McAllister Park. The latter is the largest in the area. The park is popular among hikers and bikers, offering more than three miles of hard-surface trails, as well as nature trails and soft-surface trails. Local organizations lease the soccer and baseball fields, but the softball field and basketball court are open to the public on a first-come, first serve basis. There are also four picnic pavilions available for rent for community events and family get-togethers.
Frequent travelers will enjoy living within five miles of the San Antonio International Airport, which is conveniently located off of Interstate 410 and U.S. Highway 281.
Schools in the area include John H. Wood Middle School on Judson Road, San Antonio Country Day School on Jung Road, and Madison High School on Stahl Road. Brighton School and Northern Hills Elementary School, both on Higgins Road, are also in the vicinity.
