"A lovely neighborhood with great entertainment and dining options"

Oak Highlands is for the most part a family neighborhood nestled next to Harry Moss Park in Northeast Dallas. There is also a mix of singles and single mothers making this an eclectic and somewhat upscale neighborhood. Home prices here range from $350,00 to around $500,000 and more, and there is a neighborhood homeowner's association to ensure that standards are kept up.

There are so many things to do so close to this neighborhood, you may have a hard time deciding which option to choose. Royal Oaks Country Club is due west of the neighborhood if you love golf and Harry Moss Park is great for a weekend family outing. It's a short drive or DART bus ride over to the Greenville Avenue entertainment district which has more fine and casual dining spots as well as hot nightspots as anywhere in the city of Dallas. There are also several excellent dining choices on the fringes of the Oak Highlands neighborhood. It's also a short ride to Downtown Dallas so this is an idea area for anyone who works there.

If you want a safe and beautiful place to raise kids, with manicured lawns and neighbors who will watch out your well being, Oak Highlands is an excellent choice.
  • close to many fine dining options
  • quiet for an urban area
  • close to all kinds of entertainment
  • heavy traffic on adjacent roads during rush hour
