A neighbor of the Design and Medical Districts, Oak Lawn comes with a lot of value with a low price tag. Restaurants, nature, nightlife, location: it’s all here and waiting for you. You’ll be just up the street from nightlife and dining in Uptown. Plus, the Katy Trail provides a walking, biking and jogging trail that spans 3.5 miles. Within Oak Lawn you’ll find Robert E. Lee Park, which features a walking loop; you and your four-legged best friend will quickly become regulars here.
Most people know Oak Lawn as the place to be to find diverse nightlife and each September, Oak Lawn hosts Dallas Pride, with a street festival and can’t-miss parade. Bars and restaurants line popular Cedar Springs Street, with everything from grabbing a slice pizza to gourmet tacos. Our personal favorite: Street’s Fine Chicken, which serves up some of the best southern chicken in the city. If you can handle the heat, get a side of their Sin Killer Peri-Peri sauce and don’t leave until you’ve had at least two biscuits.

Not only is Oak Lawn a mostly walkable ‘hood, it’s also home to several of Dallas’s more notable parks–including Oak Lawn Park, a popular sight for public events, picnics and strolls around Turtle Creek.
