"Merriman Park/University Manor - right in the middle of everything great in Dallas"

Located just north of Harry S. Moss Park and Native Area and just west of White Rock Lake, Merriman Park/University Manor is a neighborhood of modest and stylish family homes and manicured lawns. It has an active neighborhood association that is active in keeping the neighborhood clean and safe and disposing of recyclables properly.

Children from the Merriman Park area attend the Dallas Independent School District and there are several private schools in the area as well that parents can choose from. The neighborhood is also just northeast of Royal Oaks Country Club where you can make a day of 18 holes of golf, and you can hit the 19th hole at the bar in the clubhouse. If you need activities for the entire family, you need only drive a few miles east to White Rock Lake where you can have a family picnic, take a walk around a 10 mile paved jogging and biking path that circumnavigate the lake, or go sailing. Harry S. Moss Park, the southern border of the neighborhood is another excellent family option. With Greenville Avenue as the neighborhood border to the west, all of the very best dining and nightlife opportunities in the entire city are right at your front door.
