The community of South Southwest, as its name suggests, is situated southwest of Downtown San Antonio Texas. The community is located north of the I-410 Loop and south of I-35, only a twenty minute drive from the famed San Antonio attractions of The Alamo and The River Walk.
South Southwest offers a variety of housing options to suit many different needs. The wide, pedestrian-friendly, tree-lined streets offer a wonderful community environment for singles, families, students, and professionals alike.
A nearby park that residents enjoy is Pearsall Park. This park features disc golf as well as a separate one-half acre dog park. Dogs and their owners alike enjoy this park’s many facilities.
South Southwest lies between two Air Force Bases. Lackland Air Force Base lies to the northwest of the community, while Brooks City-Base – formerly known as Brooks Field – lies to the east.
Horizon Airport is located to the southeast of the community. This public-use airport offers two runways and is primarily a general aviation airport.
The San Antonio Missions, important cultural and religious landmarks of San Antonio’s beginnings, lie just to the east of South Southwest. These beautiful Missions are situated along the San Antonio River and are open for public viewing daily. These Missions were the largest concentrated Catholic missions in North America. A theater, museum, and book shop are located near the Mission San Jose.
Riverside Golf Course is located just north of the Missions, also along the San Antonio River. This municipal eighteen-hole course offers amazing crystal-clear river views and towering shade trees. This course is a great option for all skill levels and ages.
