Our History

The site of Los Patios was once inhabited by nomadic Indians drawn to the shade and water of Salado Creek.

In 1968, Los Patios as we now know it was founded by geologist and naturalist John Spice. Los Patios was designed to be an oasis for visitors and native San Antonians alike. Only minutes from downtown and the San Antonio International Airport, our secluded and heavily wooded eighteen acre campus is a model of preservation in an otherwise busy, developed city.

Salado Creek Greenway

Starting in 2006 the City of San Antonio, under the leadership of Mayor Howard Peek, set out to create linear parkways along Salado, Medina and Leon Creeks. Given its status as a major metropolitan city, San Antonio was woefully lacking when it came to hike and bike trails. Unlike contained city parks, which are certainly wonderful features in any city, the Greenway system connects neighborhoods, promotes healthful activities, and offers citizens a chance to engage nature in a deeper way.
In cooperation with the City Parks & Recreation Department, the owners of Los Patios negotiated a careful and mutually beneficial agreement allowing the Salado Creek Greenway to be situated, in part, across our property. With forty years of history as one of San Antonio’s most natural destinations, we thought partnering with the city on the Greenway was a great way to share the beauty of Los Patios with others. Initially, our segment will begin at our front entrance on Loop 410 and continue to Ladybird Johnson Park about 1.2 miles to our north. In 2011, the trail will be completed to Mcallister Park with eventual connections beyond!

John Spice, the creator of San Antonio sanctuary Los Patios.

When asked why Los Patios has remained such a popular, repeat destination for so many San Antonians and out-of-towners John (who sold the business in 1998…) admits, “a property as beautiful as this will always attract people. When we added the restaurant and then the shops, the appeal continued to grow. Simply put, Los Patios’ success is a ‘natural’ and we plan on keeping it that way.”
