"Affordable living close to everything cool about Dallas"

The Walnut Creek Estates neighborhood of Dallas features modest family homes and apartments in one of the busiest areas of the city. This area has been changing in the past couple of decades as Section 8 housing in the area and cheap apartments have led to a significant rise in crime here. Despite that fact there is still a lot to like about this neighborhood.

Walnut Creek Estates is served by Dallas Area Rapid Transit, making it easy to commute to most parts of the city. Downtown Dallas is only a short commute away although traffic on the major roads in the area can be clogged during rush hours. The Greenville Avenue entertainment district is only a few minutes to the southewest and it has some of the best dining and live music venues in the entire city of Dallas. Housing here is affordable and the neighborhood as a whole features many nice single family homes with finely manicured lawns. Many students of nearby Richland College call one of the apartments in the area home so there is a mix of people of all ages and races that call this area home.

Walnut Creek Estates is good choice for affordable housing in one of the busiest parts of Dallas.
