If you took Hampton you could get to Parkland in a consistent <15 mins from Kessler/North Oak Cliff.

The area between the Tollroad and Love Field is also a good one to target and has some rental options.

I agree that OP will want to stay west of Central. You're looking at heavy traffic and 20+ mins from east Dallas to the hospital.

The ones already listed: Park Cities, Oak Lawn, Turtle Creek, Uptown, Bluffview, and Lakewood

No offense, but these types of questions are annoying.

Why? Because neither of those towns are in Dallas. Those are not Dallas neighborhoods, they are towns in Tarrant county, actually I'm not even sure what county Arglye is in. Argyle might be in Denton county. Plus neither are anywhere near 15 minutes of Parkland. You should probably post in Fort Worth.

Default Moving next year, Need to be close to Parkland Hospital

Hey all. We are moving to n NE Dallas for 2 years. I used to live in Central TX so man I'd love to stay longer but you know, needs of the medical world. We need to be within 15 min commute to Parkland Hospital. We will have 4 1/2 and 3 1/2 yr old boys. THe elder is already in a Montessori and I'd love to keep him in one as he enters Kindergarten. THe younger will be there for Preschool and would do fine in Montessori or a good public school. We are big runners, cyclists, outdoorsy folks. We can handle apartment living if there is good stuff nearby! Trying to get a feel for any areas that strike you as a good fit, or great schools considering the above! Thanks so much!!

I am a little confused. Didn't you ask this same question a few days ago? Has something changed? I thought you got some good feedback.

The challenge will be a 15minute commute to Parkland. It isn't in the best part of town. If you expand to 30 minutes or less, you will have more options. Good luck.

I'm gonna go out on a limb and assume the OP will be on-call 24/7 or close to it. That makes the 15 minutes non-negotiable.

Yes, you can get a better selection by going 30-40 minutes out. But why stop there? If you extend it to 2 hours, you can live in a lake cabin on Lake Tawakoni.

Obviously, that's a silly idea. But, given the realities of certain positions in a training hospital, even the east part of Dallas is just as infeasible.

I don't have an answer for the OP, but let's stick with his/her parameters. Should be a stiff challenge.

You have already received quiet a bit of feedback......the last questions is what is your budget?

OK, I know some will dispute whatever I say, but Tuesday I had to go to DFW, so from the heart of Lakewood I took Live Oak to Woodall Rodgers to Stemmons (35) - passed Parkland in 13 minutes. This was at lunch time - so not full traffic.

Took me 25 minutes to pull up to Terminal C at the airport.
