It is how Lakewood is directly connected to downtown Dallas that helps it stand out. It and the Fair Park perfectly juxtapose with North Oak Cliff and all that new development now going on in West Dallas. Think of how the Jefferson bridge from downtown Dallas crosses the Trinity to bend around North Oak Cliff to become the Jefferson commercial district? Then there is that pretty Lake Worth next to Zang Blvd and all that new development there that is connected by the Houston viaduct.

Going straight out Gaston from downtown Dallas will connect you with the heart of Lakewood. A little beyond Lakewood is the classic urban lake of White Rock.

I think you misunderstand the term "public transit".

Congratulations to Lakewood. It certainly is a garden spot and education oasis with a wide variety of charming homes.

Not only is Lakewood a gorgeous area,but White Rock Lake really adds to the appeal of buying there.I think the close proximity is a major selling point for many people....

First post.

Planning a family move to Dallas within the next year or two.

Guess we won't be looking to buy a home in Lakewood. Yikes...

Sticker shock when I just checked prices. Lol

Probably a bit of a commute to Lewisville, Plano etc for me.

I take the HP subway to work everyday, even know the conductor.

As someone who was raised in Richardson and now lives in Lakewood, I can say that there's an element of truth there. Not that Lakewood is boring - I don't think that's true! But Richardson is a gem that doesn't get enough hype. It has some really great housing stock that is aging gracefully (not all, but some), great schools, central location, old trees, fantastic restaurants (many locally owned), the much-vaunted (and misunderstood) diversity in full effect...there is so much to love!

Richardson has grown into a really great place!
