Thanks for posting that excellent photo, TriumphOfTheSprint!

Default A small sampling of Lancaster neighborhoods

I got out Saturday and snapped a few photos of homes and neighborhoods, primarily in the northern and central portions of the city. I plan to post more pics soon.

Boardwalk, a neighborhood in northern Lancaster. All streets in this subdivision have Monopoly-themed names (Marvin Gardens, St. Charles Place, Pacific Avenue, Kentucky Avenue, etc.).








Ames Meadow, another north Lancaster neighborhood.






Tribute at Mills Branch - the first of three master-planned communities located along Lancaster's Belt Line Rd. corridor.




Images of the Millbrook neighborhood.




Glendover Estates, near the intersection of Pleasant Run Rd. and Houston School Rd.




Well-kept home in the Meadowlands subdivision of central Lancaster.

Hey wait a minute. I don't see dead bodies, drug dealers or litter and garbage in the streets. How can this not be in the southern burbs.

I had planned on getting out and taking more photos of Lancaster's neighborhoods last week, but a post-Memorial Day stomach bug followed immediately by a mild cold halted that. I'll get to those when I feel better.

Most of the pictures in this first set are situated in the vicinity of State Highway 342 (known as Dallas Avenue in Lancaster and Lancaster Road in Dallas), including the downtown area. The road runs through north-to-south through the city.

Enjoy!

Entering Lancaster from Red Oak/Ellis County going northbound on State Highway 342. The posted population figure is 36,225. There were 25,894 people living in the city in 2000.


Bear Creek Ranch Subdivision Entrance. The neighborhood is technically in unincorporated Dallas County but its residents have Lancaster addresses.


Historic homes south of the Downtown District.




Lancaster's Historic Town Square


Heritage Park Gazebo. Lancaster City Hall is in the background and the dome belongs to the First Presbyterian Church of Lancaster.


First Presbyterian Church of Lancaster


Downtown view near Lancaster Community House.


Fire Station No. 1 at the new Public Safety Facility.


Lancaster Community Park Entrance at N. Dallas Avenue.


Ducks taking a late autumn dip at the pond in Lancaster Community Park.


Lancaster High School as seen from N. Dallas Avenue.


Lancaster High School. I took this picture back in January while the students were on Winter Break.


Beverly D. Humphrey Tiger Stadium. It is located immediately behind the high school campus. Also taken in January.
BEAUTIFUL pics. Loved those homes. They are GORGEOUS! Thanks for sharing! Your pics give another perspective/view of "south of I-30." I hope you will get a chance to please post more, especially for us soon-to-be newcomers who need a balanced view of ALL of the DFW area.

Thx again for sharing, and I look forward to viewing more of your "south of I-30" pics when you get the time ....

Neither me nor my camera were harmed during the taking of these photos. Thanks for the morning laugh, Grainraiser!

Thanks, I definitely plan to post more. I have truly enjoyed getting out and exploring the many different neighborhoods and areas around the city. Another thing I noticed was that quite a few trees in our area were damaged by last week's storm. We were really battered down here and it was easily one of the worst June storms that I can recall.

Those houses look like an average home in the northern Burbs.

Yep, he was definitely joking. He was just using one of the many silly quotes that people have posted in the past that lump everything in southern Dallas County, including the separate suburban communities, into a blanket negative generalization that fails to note the huge differences of such a large region.

Lancaster is definitely not a dump, just a typical middle-class suburb of Dallas.
