About Turtle Creek
If one were to assign a personality to the Turtle Creek neighborhood, this elegant yet unpretentious community north of downtown and west of Uptown might be considered the kindly grandfather of Dallas. Turtle Creek played a prominent role in the city's early history and has quite a few stories to tell. And as you will see on a drive down Turtle Creek Boulevard, all of them are quite fascinating.
Turtle Creek runs alongside a scenic tributary of the Trinity River, starting in Reverchon Park and winding down through the greater Oak Lawn district into the adjacent Highland Park. As is often the case with land tracts containing natural resources, real estate in the area is at a premium. According to the Turtle Creek Association, which was subsequently formed to preserve, protect and enhance the Turtle Creek Corridor, Turtle Creek comprises approximately 80 city blocks with an unheard of (at least in Dallas) 90 acres of green space. Many grand estates, luxury townhomes and modern high-rises have subsequently risen up over the years to claim this urban utopia as their own.
Anyone looking for upscale living and convenience without the outdoor maintenance responsibilities of home ownership will find Turtle Creek a wonderful place to call home. It also offers:
- Close proximity to Dallas Love Field, West Village, Uptown attractions including the American Airlines Center, and the Highland Park Village
- Recreational opportunities galore including instant access to the Katy Trail
- Cultural attractions such as the Dallas Theater Center and nearby downtown Arts District
