Oak Cliff

Oak Cliff features turn-of-the-twentieth-century and mid-20th century housing, many parks, and proximity to the central business district of downtown Dallas.

In 2012 the Margaret Hunt Hill bridge opened and that meant the 15 acre Trinity Groves, a restaurant incubator at the foot of the bridge would transform the area, and new signs of innovation and development is under way transforming the area. West Dallas is poised to be the next big thing, with Bishop Arts leading the way, with its ecletic eateries and shops.

According to the first plat filed, the original township of Oak Cliff extended as far north as First Street, later named Colorado Boulevard just north of Lake Cliff, and as far south as a pavilion below Thirteenth Street. It was bounded on the east by Miller Street, later named Cliff Street, and on the west by Beckley Avenue. Jefferson Boulevard was the route of a steam railroad, and the principal north and south thoroughfare was Marsalis Avenue.
