Apache Creek Greenway Description

Apache Creek Greenway serves as an important connector through San Antonio's Westside neighborhoods. Beginning at a connection with the San Pedro Creek Greenway, the paved pathway meanders north and west away from the South Pan Am Expressway (I-35) and into community neighborhoods and parks along both sides of Apache Creek.

A popular attraction along the trail is Cassiano Park, where you'll find a swimming pool, playgrounds, picnic tables, and other amenities. On the trail's western leg, you'll also have nice views of Elmendorf Lake and Zarzamora Creek before the pathway ends in a commercial area along N. General McMullen Drive.

Note that the trail provides little tree cover, so you may wish wear sunglasses and sunscreen if heading out in sunny weather.

Parking and Trail Access

From east to west, parking is available along the trail in:

  • Amistad Park (1600 Tampico St.)
  • Escobar Park (1400 S Zarzamora St.)
  • Cassiano Park (1728 Potosi St.)
  • Elmendorf Lake Park (3700 W. Commerce St.)
