Oak Lawn

Oak Lawn is one of the wealthier areas of metropolitan Dallas, with the population consisting mainly of urban professionals.

The area is peppered with Upscale townhouses, condos, apartments, and duplexes. Along the Uptown portion on McKinney Avenue and along Turtle Creek Boulevard, there are many new high-rise condominiums and apartments. It is also a very diverse neighborhood with well-established areas of older, single family homes.

Oaklawn is located between Highland Park and I-35 which separates it from the Design District. The housing is a mixture of posh highrise apartments, amongst renovated post-war homes which attract childless professionals of all ages and types who like fine decor and dining. Retail and restaurant options range from the high end to character filled, and budget friendly choices. Reverchon Park is located close by as is Turtle Creek, a boulevard of shady green space, home to the Turtle Creek Mansion.

Part of the prestigious zip code 75219 is the infamous Turtle Creek featuring extravagance at it's best, with Mediterranean influenced homes accompanied by lush gardens, and the exquisite townhomes featuring thousands of square feet of amenities, all catering to the needs of the luxury home buyer.

Central Expressway flanks the community on the east while Woodall Rodgers Freeway (35), runs along the southern border of the community, with Lemmon Avenue to the west.
