Greenway Parks evolved from a plot of land first developed in 1927 in the “English commons” tradition of clustering homes around a series of private parkways. The graceful boulevards and heavily treed lots preserve a quiet atmosphere that belies the fact that the Dallas North Tollway runs conveniently along the neighborhood’s eastern boundary. Inwood Village and Lovers Lane, which constitute its northern end, provide top-notch shopping and dining options too.
The neighborhood sits next to Highland Park and is known to be one of the most pedestrian-oriented neighborhoods in all of Dallas. Trees lining the streets give the neighborhood the same feel as a park, and the area became a conservation district in 2003.
