Welcome to Lakewood, TX

There’s an unmistakable vibe to Lakewood. Foodies, hipsters, yuppies, artists, grandparents and kiddos happily mix and mingle in this community known for outdoor activities and community support.
Money magazine called it one of the “Top 10 Best Big-City Neighborhoods in the U.S.” and noted its beautiful setting on the rolling hills next to White Rock Lake. The area reaches out to include East Dallas, Casa Linda and Forest Hills, Swiss Avenue, Munger Place and Hollywood Heights. It’s a community that embraces nature, with the Lake and its 15 miles of trails and many tributaries serving as a giant playground to those who live and visit here. Many of the neighborhoods’ iconic homes were built in the 1920s by architects such as Charles Dilbeck and Clifford Hutsell, who also influenced the look of local gathering places like the Lakewood Shopping Center. This close knit community is served by several Blue Ribbon schools, and every year the annual 4th of July Parade draws generations of families to the sidewalks of Lakewood Boulevard. It’s one of the most welcoming neighborhoods in the area.

Green Spaces

With a backyard containing a 1,000+ acre lake surrounded by more than 15 miles of trails, several ball fields, a yacht club, culture center and boathouse, it’s understandable why residents of Lakewood and its surrounding neighborhoods live life outdoors. It’s a place where dedicated cyclists log miles on training rides while high school crew teams greet the sunrise in 8-man boats skimming the waters of White Rock Lake at top speed. Lakewood is home to professional and amateur runners, several tennis leagues, and even a Dragon Boat racing team. 

Lifestyle

The area’s bucolic setting also made it the perfect place to house the world renowned Dallas Arboretum and Botanical Garden with its newly opened Rory Meyers Children’s Adventure Garden featuring eight acres for exploration, education and play. 

Architecture

Set along the rolling hills on the shores of White Rock Lake, the communities in the Lakewood area feature some of Dallas’ most breathtaking views and beautiful topography. That’s why from the early 20th century to the mid-1950s, people moved from Downtown to the Lakewood “suburbs” to build homes designed by architects such as Charles Dilbeck and Clifford Hutsell. Their design influences remain to this day, in breathtaking residences fashioned after English country homes, Mediterranean villas, prairie-style mansions and Art Deco bungalows. The wide range of neighborhoods, lot sizes and locations means that buyers can find moderately priced cottages and large contemporary showplaces with prices that go from $200,000 to over $2,000,000. 

Shopping and Dining

Looking for something to do on a Saturday night? Head to the Lakewood Shopping Center, easily recognized by the Art Deco spire atop the Lakewood Theater. The center features a broad selection of eateries—from chicken fried steak served at Dixie House to traditional Tex-Mex fare at Mi Cocina and an incredible milkshake selection at Liberty Burger—Lakewood residents enjoy meeting up with neighbors for great food and conversation. Shoppers get their fix at an incredible selection of home goods stores along North Henderson Street and at Mockingbird Station, which national retailers such as Ann Taylor and Gap along with chic boutiques and eateries. 

Community

Lakewood is a also community rich with tradition. Each spring, Woodrow Wilson High School hosts a spring musical which draws theater fans and supports from across the city. And in the fall, the Lakewood Home Tour celebrates iconic architecture while raising money for the local early childhood PTA group. Another Lakewood tradition is the annual 4th of July parade that wanders down Lakewood Boulevard and features floats, marching bands, clown cars, twirlers and plenty of residents dressed up like Uncle Sam. Later that night residents gather around the Lakewood Country Club, built in 1912, to watch an incredible display of fireworks. And summer is the season of The Bard at the annual Shakespeare in the Park festival at Samuel Grand Park.
