A laid-back neighborhood on the eastern side of the city, Lakewood is so named because of its proximity to White Rock Lake, lying along the west shore. The lake is surrounded by picnic areas, boathouses, biking and hiking trails, and wildflower areas. Lakewood’s rolling hills and tree-lined streets give a suburban vibe while the host of shops, restaurants, and dive bars make anyone looking for big city culture and convenience feel right at home.
Lakewood’s homes are anti-cookie-cutter: everything from two-bedroom bungalows to expansive estates in numerous architectural styles: Colonial, Tudor, French Eclectic, and Spanish are common. New construction in Lakewood offers many different styles including Craftsman, Mediterranean, French, Prairie, and contemporary Mid-Century Modern-styles.
Lakewood is in the 75214 zip code of Dallas. The neighborhood boundaries are East Mockingbird Lane to Gaston Ave and White Rock Lake to Abrams Road.
