If you can tell me some good areas (price does not matter, just collecting information) or can direct me to a certain resource, like a great real estate agent, I would sincerely appreciate it!
Thanks in advance!
I'm not a Lawton native, I moved here from Hobart about 10 years ago but I think I have a feel for the better neighborhoods. I'd say in the city proper, the neighborhood along Meadow Brook Drive from about NW 52nd street to NW 40th is a nice older neighborhood with lots of large mature trees. Especially along the side streets of Heinzwood Circle and NW 46th. Personally if I wanted to purchase a home in the city of Lawton Heinzwood or NW 46th off Meadow Brook would be my first choice. Other neighborhoods would be the area's surrounding Comanche County Memorial Hospital on the North and West. NW 36th and NW 35th north to Ferris and NW Ridgeview Way to Ferris.

There are also some pretty nice neighborhoods north of Cache Road between 38th on the west and east to about 31st street and north to Denver or so. But once you get east of 27th especially on Denver the neighborhood get's pretty run down. On the west side of town you have Grayson Mountain Estates which is....well, sorta like Lawton's version of Gaylardia....most of the more expensive and exclusive homes are in that area which are in the 350k to 700k range. Further west in Cache school district is the Pecan Valley area which are very nice homes for the most part many of which sit on at least an acre.

There are several new additions south of Lee Blvd and west of 38th street as well. Although if I were you and had school age children I wouldn't want them going to any of the high schools in Lawton. I'd rather be west of Lawton in the Cache school district or NE of Lawton in the Elgin, Fletcher or Sterling school districts. All of those areas NE of Lawton have seen a huge building boom, especially Elgin and there are many many nice homes in those communities.

Now, this certainly isn't any sort of definitive list of the nicest places in Lawton, there are many nice neighborhoods in town with many of them on the east side of town. I've just listed a few off the top of my head and tried to give you some idea.

How is the area out by the airport? When I lived in Lawton, that was where a lot of the low income housing was.

This thread's a bit dated, I know....

Anyone know why Lawton is so racially diverse? It can't be only Fort Sill related, I imagine? Even driving around town, I notice quite a bit of diversity in the drivers.

Its all Ft Sill......from the relocation of the Comanche and Apache to today's diversity in the military. without Ft Sill Lawton would be a small ranching community town.
