Central West San Antonio Neighborhood Areas
Best known as the original, historic suburbia of San Antonio, the Central West portion of the city is an eclectic combination of the historic Deco District and pockets of Mexican and Tejano culture. Mid-century homes, area amenities, and historic attractions with an artistic bend populate this well-established portion of the city. Showcased best by attractions like the Guadalupe Cultural Arts Center, Cattleman Square, the Basilica of the National Shrine of the Little Flower, Our Lady of the Lake University and the historic St. Mary’s University, the area is full of history and charm. Though distinctly an urban area, Elmendorf Lake Park, Woodlawn Lake, and area creeks have undergone improvements and city care, now boasting pedestrian bridges, trails, improved picnic plazas, and expanded parking.
