During the 2010 Town Plan meetings residents expressed support for creating a comprehensive series of pathways for pedestrians and bicyclists. Providing these paths would allow Shavano Park residents to connect to San Antonio sidewalks and other multi-use pathways along Lockhill-Selma and Salado Creek as seen in the figure to the right. Currently, Lockhill-Selma and Pond Hill Road are the only pedestrian friendly roadways with sidewalks and/or bike paths. The 2010 Town Plan identified the following expansion areas: (1) Along the north side of De Zavala Road from NW Military to Lockhill-Selma; (2) From Lockhill-Selma to Blattmann Elementary and the future Salado Creek trail system; (3) Sidewalks and Bike lanes in the NW Military Highway improvement project; and (4) Along the east side of Lockhill-Selma Road from Huebner to De Zavala.
Denton Communities agreed to partner with the City to help pay for the construction of the sidewalks. In 2014 the City of Shavano Park arranged two land swap agreements with the City of San Antonio to facilitate San Antonio's Salado Creek (in blue on right of map) trail construction. This Salado Creek trail system is intended to be joined with the Eastbound Loop 1604 sidewalk (in green). Denton Communities with the City of Shavano Park conducted preliminary engineering planning for the Eastbound Loop 1604 sidewalks, gaining the Texas Department of Transportation's approval for the plans in the summer of 2015. Construction is planned to commence in 2016.
