Thanks everyone for your inputs to my questions. I wanted to ask some general questions about HEB area...so thought would be good to start a new thread. I am really sorry if I am doing something wrong.

We are considering to move to Euless and would like some comments on the following,
1) How is North of Euless (north of 183) compared to South of Euless in terms of - is north or south better in your personal opinion, is any part more run down than the other, does north or south have older buildings in general, is north or south more cleaner than the other side etc.?
2) Is north Euless more kids friendly neighborhood or is it the south?
3) Where exactly are parks or any place where kids can have some good fun?
4) Any good elementary schools in these areas?
5) In general, Do they have side-walks for people to walk along the roads? - of course I am not talking about the highways
6) Along the same lines, how would east of Bedford be when compared to north or south of Euless?
7) Any good rentals for 2BR <$1000 would be useful.

These are just some quick questions I had in my mind. Any info would be great

North Euless has more upscale living and a better park system. But the schools are pretty good all over HEB. South of 183 is just older and a little more "blue collar" but nothing wrong with it and closer to N.Arlington for you. Most neighborhoods do have sidewalks. Here's a couple of interesting listings:

Wow $900/mo duplex in N.Euless in Grapevine schools; this one will go fast even tho it only has 1 bathroom 301 Augustine Dr Euless TX - Home for Rent - MLS #11902761 - Realtor.com®

Even this neighborhood would be fine which is south of 183 in Hurst (also near the train station), decent elementary and close to a part: 18 Page St Hurst TX - Home For Sale and Real Estate Listing - MLS #11918391 - Realtor.com®

Here's the website for the HEB ISD:
Hurst-Euless-Bedford ISD

Yes, as required by the ADA, residential streets in these areas do have sidewalks.

North Euless is the only area to see any recent new home development in the entire area. My friends who live in N. Euless love their location and place a premium on the Grapevine/Colleyville School District. I move to Bedford, west of 121 just off of Harwood Road in 2008. I haven't any regrets. We live outside of an expansive walking trail where we and the kids get out to stretch our legs on occasion. We also live within walking distance of Meadow Creek Elementary - one of the more highly regarded in H-E-B. So, yes, there are sidewalks, walking trails, and crossing guards aplenty in all of Euless, Bedford, and Hurst. The Euless public library is a great place for story-time for tiny tots and the Hurst Recreation Center is a great place for pre-school classes at an inviting price. All in all H-E-B is a great place to live if you make the most of what it has to offer.

1. I grew up in south Euless ('67-'86) and live in the north today. It has grown old gracefully. Lower income naturally but clean and low crime. If I ever get the opportunity to buy the house I grew up in I will.

2. I would say both are equal.

3. Midway Park, The Parks at Texas Star, Villages at Bear Creek Park, Bear Creek Park, River Legacy Park isn't far away, Bob Eden Park, lots of parks here. Grapevine Lake a few miles away.

4. They are all fine.

5. Most every road and street has a sidewalk.

6. East side of Bedford is fine but you start getting into more traffic in that Hwy 121 area. A lot more.

7. Probably in the Bear Creek Parkway area.

One thing you can do is bring up an area you're looking at on Google maps and follow it on the streetview.
