About Shavano

11 Police Dept (2) (1)


The City of Shavano Park has a unique rural feel in an urban setting. Shavano Park is completely surrounded by the City of San Antonio to the North, South, East, and West. Easily accessible to some of San Antonio’s major attractions, Shavano Park is nicely situated just 12 miles from the River Walk and downtown San Antonio.

The City of Shavano Park is actually a collection of communities that form the larger community of Shavano Park. These different communities offer slightly different neighborhood aesthetics, but all provide a calm and peaceful setting.

Old Shavano Park
The city of Shavano Park was incorporated on June 19, 1956. The oldest area of town dates to original founding and provides a rural atmosphere and setting in Greater San Antonio. The neighborhood provides the largest lot sizes of any residential area, with some of the lots approaching 10 acres. The quiet neighborhood and spacious lots provide the rural small town atmosphere preferred by Shavano Park residents. Old Shavano Park is defined east of NW Military Highway as well as the areas along Elm Spring and Long Bow north of the Shavano Park City Hall at the corner of De Zavala and NW Military Highway.

Shavano Park Estates
Shavano Park Estates is the second oldest community in Shavano Park. The Shavano Park Estates offers smaller lot sizes and a greater small town atmosphere than the more rural setting of Old Shavano Park. Shavano Park Estates, however, provides the same quiet streets and beautiful homes accompanied by natural beauty that is the trademark of Shavano Park.

Shavano Creek
Located in the south/west corner of Shavano Park, Shavano Creek provides beautiful homes situated on 1 – 2 acre sized lots. Shavano Creek community was annexed by the City in 1999 and exits with its own Housing Association.

Bentley Manor
Bentley Manor is luxury gated community located off of Lockhill-Selma in the western section of Shavano Park. It is composed of two different neighborhoods that offer slightly different lifestyles: the Bentley Manor Garden Homes and the Bentley Manor Garden Villas. The Garden Homes are on larger lots while the Garden Villas are on smaller lots while still offering a spacious 3,500 foot floor space. All homes are custom-designed and built by Monticello Homes and Prestige Homes and offer luxurious amenities.
