Outside La Cantera

Whether you have just moved into La Cantera or have been here since the beginning, there is a lot to do and take in around our complex. If you are a thrill-seeker, a shopaholic or an outdoorsman, you are in a dream location! If there isn’t something you are looking for within walking distance, it’s most likely just a short drive away. Here are a few of the must-sees/dos!

You have probably seen the nightly fireworks and laser lights display from your apartment, but have you taken a day off work to enjoy the park?  Six Flags has thrill rides,  family rides, a water park, entertainment and more. The amusement park opens daily at 10:30 a.m. and the water park opens at noon.  The park is hosting a  Fourth of July Fest July 4 through 6, featuring early ride times and a special fireworks display.

Enjoy the Outdoors
There are plenty of local parks nearby for jogging, hiking or walking your dog. Nearby Leon Creek Greenway Park has approximately 15 miles of trail for hiking, biking, or walking and connections include UTSA, Earl Scott Pond, Cathedral Rock Park and more. Fox Park trail is a good location if you are a runner and Eisenhower Park is a nice location for a large group gathering. Best of all, as long as you’re not renting a pavilion, it’s free!
