Village in the Woods Apartments for Rent(hide neighborhood information)
Village in the Woods is a gated community close to the Crossing at Quail Creek. It is situated between Mainland Drive and Tezel Road and bordered by Guillbeau Road to the north. Charles Anderson Loop 1604, Bandera Road and Loop 410 (Interstate 410) provide easy access to Southwest Research Institute, St. Mary’s University San Antonio, the Methodist Specialty Hospital and Lackland Air Force Base.
This lovely gated community has a range of homes, some of which are small, others larger two-story or split-level structures. They range in size from a reasonably small 1300+ square feet to substantially larger, almost 3,000 square foot models. The majority of these contemporary style homes were built between 1998 and 2006.
Some of the larger homes are situated so that they have views of a greenbelt where deer and other wildlife run freely. This gives this centrally located city neighborhood the flavor of country living, but without the isolation.
Nature lovers will enjoy the fact that this community is close to all sorts of enjoyable outdoor places, with an abundance of activities for people to pursue. Cathedral Rock Nature Park is located on Grissom Road. The park has almost 57 acres of playscapes and nature trails.
A short drive will provide city dwellers with a chance to escape from every day life with the raw beauty of the Texas landscape at Government Canyon State Natural Area. This nature preserve is located just outside of San Antonio in Bexar County. Government Canyon is situated on “Joe Johnston” Road which goes from San Antonio to Bandara. This road was blazed by the military at Fort Sam Houston in the 1850s.
The Government Canyon area is known for the wide range of beautiful trees, including mountain laurels, ash junipers, mesquite, live oak, Mexican buckeye, Escarpment black cherry trees and Lindheimers silk tassel trees. Steep slopes provide a fabulous overlook for viewing Bexar county and San Antonio and for seeing rare birds like the golden cheeked warbler.
