We will be moving to Dallas in February and a big part of our life is exercising as a family.

I found another post that mentioned Richardson TX: Parks and Recreation (http://www.cor.net/ParksAndRecreation.aspx?id=4044 - broken link) I really liked what this area has to offer. The houses are reasonably priced and the schools seem decent.

I will be teaching at inner-city schools in Dallas and am already aware that I will drive up to an hour one-way. So, list your areas recreation homepage, regardless of where it's located, to help us decide where we are going to live.

Thanks in advance.

Lake Highlands YMCA is popular with families.

The surrounding area is Dallas, but zoned to Richardson schools. You should have an easy commute from here, but it depends on the location of the school where you will be teaching? Do you know the name of the school?

In that area, there's also the Cottonwood Creek trail, which will soon be part of a system that runs from Plano to White Rock Lake.

Homes in Northwood Park are reasonably priced and less than a mile from both the YMCA and trail. They are also in the Richardson ISD. When traffic is flowing, you can get to downtown Dallas in less than 15 minutes from NP.

There are many excellent Dallas schools located between the Katy Trail (and its new extension) the Santa Fe Trail and White Rock Lake and the Arboretum, Samuell/Grand/Tension Parks. You won't need to commute an hour.

I can't see you commuting a hour unless you fall in love with a place far from work. Give us the name of your new school and I bet I can make some recommendations within 30 minutes of your school.
