The Whispering Oaks neighborhood is located in north central San Antonio and unlike many other neighborhoods in the city it is based around the idea of open space and plenty of trees and outdoor foliage. Whispering Oaks was originally built in farm land and pastures that were purchased solely for development when the city of San Antonio began to expand to the north. As the city became larger and larger Whispering Oaks became quite popular and as such more residents began to move into the neighborhood in search of some additional space.
Part of what sets Whispering Oaks apart from other neighborhoods in the area is the history and tradition found in the neighborhood. Because Whispering Oaks was originally developed before the city began to expand there is much more space and plenty of trees and grass to keep everything more natural looking than most urban neighborhoods. Whispering Oaks is also packed full of things to do and plenty of necessary shops and businesses that you would expect from nearly an urban neighborhood. Due to the fact that Whispering Oaks is a neighborhood it is not surprising to find that there is a home owners association that controls and regulates basically everything that goes on in the neighborhood; they also put on multiple activities and celebrations throughout the year to celebrate holidays and seasons.
Overall the Whispering Oaks neighborhood is a very unique neighborhood with some interested and unique features that aren't found in most neighborhoods. Very few neighborhoods have the amount of space or trees found in Whispering Oaks and that is definitely what sets the neighborhood apart from others in the area. You will also find that Whispering Oaks has plenty of public parks as well as a public library and quick access to public schools as well. Whispering Oaks also has plenty of conveniently located shopping and dining locations that keep residents happy without encroaching on the neighborhood too much. Definitely take a look at Whispering Oaks as it is one of the more unique urban neighborhoods you will find in the San Antonio area; if you want something with a little bit more rural feel then you will still need to get further out of the city but Whispering Oaks really does a good job of creating a somewhat rural feel immediately within the city.
