No. Very rough neighborhood next to one of FWISD's lowest-performing high schools.

the fort worth/east section of 7611X usually isn't good.
(76112, 76117, 76118 etc)

What about the Carver Heights Historic area?? Neighborhood appears somewhat better than other areas I've toured, and it's minutes from work. Opinion?

I was speaking to a coworker who said he moved from the heavily hispanic portion of the North side of
Fort Worth to the south side of Fort Worth by rosedale. He said it is a rough neighborhood.

Eventhough, there are some nice neighborhoods, gentrification, mixed culture of people and would be close to work for you. I personally would have reservations in recommending that area.
If you must be down in that corner of the metro, I would suggest to look at East of East820.

There is a nice golf course on Division just around Dottie Pkwy/Green oaks Blvd area.
You might be little better off on the Arlington/Fort Worth Borderline.

Meadowbrook is a decent part of east Fort Worth. It's just south of i30. Im not familiar with Carver Heights, but I generally avoid parts south of Rosedale.

Rocky is correct that basically anything west of east loop 820 is going to be rough. You need to be really careful in those parts.

The eastchase / meadowbrook area will be your best bet.

In my opinion only, stay east of 820


If you are referring to the eastchase/meadowbrook area there is a Walmart, Sams, Target with strip shopping center, walmart neighborhood store on meadowbrook. Kroger, Home Depot on the North end
of I-30/820.

To the south a on 820 and 287:
There is a new walmart on 287 and another one on debbie lane. Shopping strips along side of 20
and you have the Parks mall on Collins/20.


I occasionally travel west on Division/Lancaster from Arlington to 820.
Mixed older homes with some new development. buildings retail/warhouse, some bars, older auto sales, Arlington Baptist University, Masonic Lodge retirement home

I just see the view from the main road, obviously there are sincere nice neighborhoods within the area. But I do not frequent the off the main road through each neighborhood.

Handley: A small community on the corner of 820 and Division with its own Vintage shop, cleaners, and gas station.
Close to to Lake Arlington which has the big power units.
