Between tonier Highland Park to the north and flashier Uptown to the south, Oak Lawn has long been the center of Dallas community with a mix of retail, resturants, entertainment + streets of charming old homes & plus the luxury living along Turtle Creek.
The area we now know as Oak Lawn/ Cedar Springs got its start in 1846 when William Grigsby, a veteran of the Texas Revolution, sold 320 acres of land to businessman John Cole who established a store and commercial area on the property. In the early 1870s people began moving into the rapidly developing residential developments outside of downtown Dallas in larger numbers. The Oak Lawn area was particularly attractive to settlers due to the abundance of majestic trees – mostly oak and cedar – and easy access to fresh water via natural springs. Development centered around the first Methodist church building, built in 1874.
By 1910 Dallas had hired the noted city planner, George E. Kessler, who in that year produced the city’s first master plan. It included plans for the creation of Trezevant’s dream of 1889 of a parkway along Turtle Creek.
Exall’s former farm property was put on the market as Highland Park by John S. Armstrong in the first decade of this century. Lakeside Drive was laid off as a major street in the suburban city.
Over the years the parkway has been developed with greater skill and continuing care by the Dallas park department, originally assisted by the Kansas City landscape engineering firm of Hare & Hare. It figured in a great controversy less than a decade ago (in the 1960s) when the city government decided to widen Turtle Creek Drive through Oak Lawn. Spectacular efforts were made by both proponents and opponents of this traffic improvement program to win public opinion to their side of the argument. But the widening project was finally carried out from Gillespie to Irving.
Both the city of Dallas and its park department have made memorable efforts since the widening to bring the parkway to a degree of attractiveness unsurpassed in the United States. Most critics in and out of Dallas agree that this beautification project has made Turtle Creek Drive one of the most elegant to be found on the continent. The late syndicated columnist O. O. McIntyre called Highland Park the “most beautiful suburb in America”; and he gave equal praise to Turtle Creek Drive—the main approach to Highland Park from Dallas.
Katy Trail: What was once an abandoned railroad line is now one of the most iconic destinations in Dallas: the Katy Trail. Each year, the park welcomes over 1.5 million visits to the beautiful scenery on 3.5 miles of well-maintained path.
In addition to being the premier destination for jogging, biking, skating, and walking in Dallas, the Katy Trail also hosts exciting events, including the annual Katy 5K presented by Michelob ULTRA.
The Katy Trail, as most locals know it, began in 2000, but the history of the Katy Trail stretches back nearly a hundred years to the age of railroads. Union Pacific Railroad built the Missouri-Kansas-Texas Railroad and established the network in 1865 as the Southern Branch. The route was also commonly called the K-T, and eventually the Katy. Following the heyday of the railroad, Union Pacific donated the abandoned lines to the city of Dallas in 1993. The initial plan for the historic Katy rail line was to use it as part of the DART line; however, in the mid 1990s, a group of passionate neighbors and local businesses proposed that the line be converted into the beautiful greenbelt you see today.
Reverchon Park: Reverchon Park is 46 acres (0.19 km2) in area, and offers around 40 leisure and recreational program for citizens, including health screenings, tutoring, athletic leagues, yoga, volleyball, and after-school programs. The park also is home to baseball fields, basketball courts, and tennis courts.
A playground in the park, accessible to children of all abilities, was designed by the Texas Scottish Rite Hospital, the American Academy of Orthopedic Surgeons, and the City of Dallas.
A section of the Katy Trail, a recreational rail trail, runs adjacent to the park. It connects to parks of the Trinity River Project.
The Turtle Creek Dallas area is a small, private area that directly borders Uptown Dallas (on the Katy Trail), but is technically not Uptown Dallas. It is essentially a long but narrow strip of land that runs along the Turtle Creek Dallas (and the Katy Trail). To the east of Katy Trail is the McKinney Avenue and the West Village Areas of Uptown Dallas. To the west of the Katy Trail border of Uptown Dallas is the Turtle Creek Dallas area. Turtle Creek Dallas butts directly up against the popular Katy Trail and so has very quick access to it, making Uptown Dallas and Turtle Creek become one in a sense in this section.
