"Affordable housing just south of the Trinity River and Downtown Dallas"

A small neighborhood in West Dallas, Ledbetter Gardens is a working-class neighborhood made up of mostly blacks and Hispanics. Most of the homes here are modest brick family homes with a median price of about $80,000, making this one of the most affordable neighborhoods in all of Dallas. The neighborhood is served by both the Dallas Independent School District and the Irving Independent School District, so if you're buying a home in the region you'll want to consult with your real estate agent to find out which school district your child will be attending. For the most part, the Irving schools are a better choice for most parents and children.

Like many West Dallas neighborhoods, Ledbetter Gardens has a higher crime rate than the city of Dallas as a whole, and window bars and fenced in front yards are the norm in most of West Dallas. There are fewer dining and shopping choices here than there are for most Dallas neighborhoods, but if you want some good food you can visit the Triple A Diner on Westmoreland Road or the Cafe Italia for excellent Italian cuisine on nearby Pluto Street.
