"A cozy neighborhood with hike and bike trails leading to White Rock Lake"

The University Terrace neighborhood in Dallas has a number of housing options for people from all walks of life. Roomy single family homes with spacious lawns are the order of the day here, but one of the drawbacks of the neighborhood is a number of homes are rented out. It's close to some of the best attractions that the city of Dallas has to offer.

Just east of University Terrace is one of the best recreation areas in all of Dallas, White Rock Lake. There are hike and bike trails that lead directly to the lake from this neighborhood where you can enjoy fishing and sailing, or just have a picnic and people-watch. Next door is the Dallas Arboretum, which is a great place to see a concert in the evenings. The area is served by Dallas Area Rapid Transit, making it cheap and easy to commute to any part of the city. Just west of the neighborhood is the Greenville Avenue entertainment district that has the hottest nightspots and some of the best fine dining in the entire Dallas area.

University Terrace is a great neighborhood for families and also is a great choice for a professional wanting to be close to work for a short commute via car or DART rail line.
  • next to White Rock Lake and the Dallas Arboretum
  • close to fine dining and shopping
  • heavy traffic on adjacent roads during rush hour
  • rising crime rates over the past two decades
