"An affordable housing option close to White Rock Lake"

Lake Park Estates is a neighborhood in East Dallas that has around 300 modest small family homes that were built in the 1950's and 1960's. It is one of the most affordable neighborhoods in the area with some of the ranch style homes available for as little as $150,000. The area features a multitude of beautiful mature Live Oaks, Red Oaks, American Elm, Crape Myrtle and is one located in one of the best regions in the city for recreation, fine dining, and nightlife.

Lake Park Estates is less than one mile from the best urban oasis in the city, White Rock Lake. It's the perfect place to fish, sail, or use the ten mile paved path around the lake to walk, jog, or bike. Next door, the Dallas Arboretum has 66 acres of finely manicured gardens to temp the eyes and other senses. Some of the best dining and nightspots are just west of the neighborhood on Greenville Avenue, which boasts a bevy of fine dining options from a number of different cuisines such as Italian, French, American comfort food, and Chinese. It is also home to some of the hottest nightspots in the city, and home to some of the best live music venues.
