Thanks for the info. I have lived here all my life but there are still new things to learn and new places to explore.

Thumbs up Balch Springs has a lot to offer

Balch Springs is a small town Southeast of Dallas. We have several major highways that run right thru or beside our town. We have almost 20,000 people. We are serviced by 2 different school district, Dallas and Mesquite. The Mesquite schools that serve Balch Springs are almost all Reconized. We have a Wonderful Library-Learning Center, a New Civic Center, New Soccer Fields. We recently opened a New Super Wal-Mart and shopping center with Double Dave's, and several nice Dress Shops. We have a new Jack In the Box and Washington Mutual opening soon. Wonderful things happening in our City.

We'll need a little more clarification to be able to help you on this. Would this be:

(1) Hubbard, TX - in Hill County, TX - NE of Waco between I35E and I45, or
(2) Hubbard, TX - in Bowie County, TX - West of Texarkana just north of I30, or
(3) Lake Ray Hubbard just NE of Dallas

you're speaking of?

Well, hopefully, it is improving. We lived on the eastern border of Dallas/Balch Springs about 12 years ago. At least at that time, the whole area (the part that was Dallas and Balch Springs too) was a hotbed for crime I'm sorry to have to say.

This is not meant to offend anyone but I have never yet found an area in southeast Dallas County that I have really liked all that much. This is just an impression but some (not all) of the towns down there have a seedy feel to them.

Even though my comments are a little belated, I just wanted to say that it is nice to hear from a Balch Springs resident who obviously has community pride. Regardless of where we live in the Metroplex, positive developments taking place in any city or town should be celebrated.

You northerners. When I lived in Lanc, I cruised those places, Ovilla, Ferris of Ferris Wheel fame (no, really; name of long-gone community paper) and more.
