"an affordable housing option for singles and families in the middle of a thriving city"

Hamilton Park is a neighborhood in North Dallas with a considerable amount of history behind it. It was named after Dr. Richard Hamilton, a physician and black civic leader and the area that bears his name today was originally built to house blacks whose homes had been demolished after the Love Field Airport was expanded in 1950. Today it is a neighborhood with modest and affordable homes, some of which are up for rental, that is popular to this day with minorities and other lower income people who desire housing without the Lake Highlands price tag.

One of the very best selling points for families are the educational opportunities available for children. The area is served by the Richardson Independent School District, which is recognized by the state of Texas as being one of the very best in academics, sports, and other extracurricular activities. The presence of rental homes in the area means some of the landscaping has gone by the wayside and there is little in the form of a neighborly feeling to the area. On the bright side, several great attractions in the area means you won't have to go far from home to enjoy fine dining and great entertainment.
  • some of the lowest home prices in the area
  • close to fine dining and shopping
  • some homes are rented out
  • rising crime rates over the past two decades
