On my way to a new listing (with a cool 3-D Walking Tour) in the Taylor Ranch neighborhood of Santa Fe Village, I pass a shaded little pocket park. Thirty-year mature shade trees line a 1/10-mile walkway with benches on each side; it meanders over a San Antonio arroyo culvert & connects to the Santo Domingo Bikepath greenspace. The park is a slice of green on the edge of busy Unser Blvd on one side & the limited-access Santa Fe Village pocket neighborhood on the other.
From the Azuelo Pocket Park facing north, is the San Antonio arroyo, seen above. The large 13.7acre Taylor Ranch Library Park sits further up the the arroyo.
The Azuelo Pocket Park juts into Santa Fe Village, connecting that neighborhood to the around-the-city 50+ mile MetroABQ Bike Paths. Below is a scene you can view from the eastern side of the small park, facing toward the Unser Blvd Mosaic wall.
