I've read a lot of the posts about Lakewood, and it sounds very appealing to me. If I'm trying to search that area specifically, what boundaries am I looking for? (street names, zip code, etc.) Thanks!

Abrams is the western border.

White Rock Lake is the eastern border.

Gaston is the southern border.

Mockingbird is the northern border.


This is for truly "Lakewood proper" neighborhood. The boundaries for Lakewood elementary school are slightly wider (see DISD's website for exact boundaries). However, th greater East Dallas area has a lot of charming neighborhoods that outsiders often call "Lakewood" even though they are actually Hollywood Heights/ Santa Monica, Greenland Hills/ M Streets, Vickery Place, Cochran Heights, Munger Place, Swiss Ave Historic District, Lakewood Heights, etc.

Lakewood is in 75214, but not all of that zip code is Lakewood. Other neighborhoods I mentined are in 223 and 206 zips.

Basically Abrams on the west. White Rock Lake on the east. Mockingbird to the north. Gaston to the south. It's 75214.

Exactly so. You will find that most people who live more than a few miles from here call Junius Heights, Munger Place, Lakewood, Swiss Ave Historic, etc "Lakewood" so if you are seeking true Lakewood proper the boundaries are as given. If you are seeking what most folks from more than a couple miles out of this region call Lakewood, then 75214 as Pepper said, and also some of the southern edge of 75206.

Lakewood Elementary attendance zone: http://www.dallasisd.org/cms/lib/TX0...kewood2011.pdf Part of 75223, a.k.a. Hollywood Heights, is included. I sometimes say I am from Lakewood and other times from East Dallas.

Lakewood Country Club opened in 1912 and took its name from White Rock Lake, which opened in 1911. Lakewood Country Club Estates started to be developed in the early to mid 20s. Then Doc Harrell opened a drug store at Gaston and Abrams in 1924 and called the shopping center "Lakewood". Lakewood Theater came along in 1938. So really anything close to there can called "Lakewood". See: http://174.121.35.188/~lakewood/imag...club-study.pdf The shopping center at Mockingbird and Abrams, originally called "Hillside Village", is increasingly called "Lakewood" because some of the shops have that in their names..

Yep, the sign for the entire southeast corner (Albertson's) says "Lakewood Village" with "Lakewood Gym" et al and across the street is Lakewood's 1st and 10, etc...

Why do people north of Mockingbird say they live in Lakewood? The street signs say that neighborhood is University Terrace.
