Local Community Information:
Tucked away in a corner of East Dallas sits one of the most charming neighborhoods in North Texas ~ Lakewood. Adjacent to the beautiful White Rock Lake and anchored by the stately Swiss Avenue, Lakewood boasts a collection of historically significant neighborhoods with everything from small bungalows to massive 20th century estates. But on those leafy, tree lined streets, newer homes are also cropping up. And along nearby Fitzhugh and Henderson Avenues, new townhome projects attract young professionals looking for a spot close to downtown Dallas.
Like the neighboring M Street/Lower Greenville community, downtown Lakewood has a charm all its own. From its Fall Home Festival and Tour to its annual Fourth of July Parade, locals also enjoy an array of restaurants and shopping venues surrounding the historic Lakewood Theater. And with the Dallas Arboretum and Botanic Garden just a short drive away, it’s no wonder locals view Lakewood as the gem of North Texas.
