Neighborhood Information

Lake Park Estates is a neighborhood in east Dallas, Texas (USA) on the north corner of the diagonal intersection of Buckner Road (Loop 12) and Garland Road (SH 78).[1] It is bordered by the Casa Linda Shopping Center, Casa Linda Estates, Old Lake Highlands, Eastwood, and Dallas’s White Rock Lake Park.

Lake Park Estates contains 288 homes, most of which were built in the 1950s and 1960s. The neighborhood features variations on traditional ranch style houses, and it has some eclectic homes, including a notable home designed by Glenn Allen Galaway, a student of architect Philip Johnson.

All but one of the streets in the neighborhood are named after Irish locations or themes: Donegal, County Cork, Waterford, Athlone, Kilarney, Tralee, Erin, Galway, Tipperary, Bridget, Limerick, and Wicklow. The sole exception is Tranquilla, which continues up from Casa Linda Estates, a neighborhood with Spanish-inspired street names.
