East Dallas

East Dallas is where my husband Bruce grew up.  As a newly married couple we bought our first home in Little Forest Hills.  We have many fond memories of spending weekends cruising around White Rock Lake, dinners at El Fenix, breakfasts at Barbec’s, and fantastic chinese food at Hong Kong.

When they were kids, Bruce and his buddies used to run up and down the railroad tracks, play in the creeks and ride bicycles all over White Rock Lake.  He graduated from Bryan Adams High School in East Dallas.

The Arboretum and White Rock Lake are right next door to each other and are the best places to go to enjoy the great outdoors during summer and winter. Many events and concerts are held there throughout the year.


The East Dallas area is eclectic, diverse, and a beautiful community bounded by Central Expressway to the west, Mockingbird Lane to the north, Loop 12 (Northwest Highway) to the east, and Fair Park to the south.  The two most popular areas of East Dallas would be the Dallas Arboretum and White Rock Lake – and they are right next door to each other.  Fodor’s Travel explains the gardens the best – “Spend an hour or two here to escape the noise and traffic of the city, walk nature trails, admire sculpture, and recline in soft, manicured grass.”    There are many events held at the Arboretum from weddings, to a pumpkin patch, a Tulip festival, Christmas events and more.

There are many different styles of homes within East Dallas.  There are streets that curve through neighborhoods surrounded by mature trees.  Area subdivisions could have cottages, ranch style homes, contemporary, English style, tudors, and mid-century modern.  There is even a subdivision called Little Forest Hills who has all of those styles and more.

Zip codes for East Dallas are 75159, 75204, 75206, 75210, 75214, 75215, 75218, 75223, 75227, 75228, 75231 and 75246.
