Dallas > East Dallas > Lake Park Estates

Lake Park Estates sits just north of Casa Linda Plaza and east of White Rock Lake and features homes that date primarily from the 1950s and 1960s. All but one of the streets are named for Irish locations, and the prevalence of mid-century modern houses set along wooded streets is a selling point for homeowners.
