Castle Hills is a small community located in north central San Antonio that has become somewhat of a residential center in the city. Castle Hills has been around for quite some time and as the city of San Antonio began to expand the residents and city officials decided to resist being annexed by the city; thanks to that Castle Hills is still an independent city that is simply surrounded by San Antonio. The city is relatively small but thanks to the fact that much of the city has been around for a while it is still spread out and open compared to most other urban cities in the San Antonio area.
Castle Hills is unofficially known as "the city of beautiful homes" which definitely says something about the city. Much of the city is made up of larger homes with traditional style design and architecture which gives Castle Hills a unique and interesting feel that most other cities do not have. Castle Hills also has plenty of outdoor space in the form or parks; in particular many residents find that the Castle Hills common area is a great place to get outside and enjoy the weather. This common area is home to the local fire station as well as multiple acres of open land with trees and grass; it is essentially the biggest park in the city and it is located directly in the center of everything.
As with many small towns the city of Castle Hills tries to stay unified as a single community. This is precisely why city program managers frequently put on shows, events, and activities to keep families and residents entertained and keep everyone united as a community. If you want to live in a small urban town that is separated from the big city around it then Castle Hills is definitely a location to consider; few other cities offer the small town style community while still maintaining direct access to a big city like San Antonio. You can be completely separated while at Castle Hills and still only have to drive 10 minutes to make it into San Antonio for work; it is incredibly convenient while still offering the laid back relaxed lifestyle you would find in many smaller towns. Castle Hills really is a unique city located within San Antonio that no other cities can compete with.
