"right next door to the party - while still a great and affordable place to raise a family"

Located furthest east of the Lake Highlands area neighborhoods, Forest Meadow East is right in the middle of one of the most vibrant areas of Dallas. Developed in the 1970's, Forest Meadows East is a family-oriented neighborhood perfect for families with children who are looking for quality homes at an a reasonable price.

One of the best selling points of the neighborhood for families is the quality of the public schools. This area is served by the Richardson Independent School District, which is recognized on a regular basis by the state of Texas for excellence in academics and several other sports and extracurricular activities. The Forest Lane DART station makes travel and commuting to other parts of the city fast and easy and you can get there by riding a bike on the scenic Cottonwood Trail.

The western border of the neighborhood is Greenville Avenue, which is home to some of the most eclectic nightlife and live music venues in the state of Texas. There are also a number of high quality restaurants serving everything from Italian to Greek, to a good old-fashioned greasy American cheeseburger.

Forest Meadow East is a great place to experience some of the very best that the city of Dallas has to offer.
