Oak Lawn has a distinct culture. It’s affectionately called the “gayborhood” by locals for its high population of LGBTQ+ -friendly clubs, restaurants, shops, and events like the annual Halloween parade. The mix of posh, high-rise apartments among renovated post-war homes draws urban professionals of all ages and types who have fine tastes in decor and dining. Retail and restaurant options tend to be unique, ranging drastically from the highest-end to the character-filled and budget-friendly.
The elegant Turtle Creek corridor, north of downtown Dallas in the Oak Lawn area, makes up 80 city blocks, containing approximately 90 acres of green space, as well as luxury townhomes and modern high-rises. The area has spectacular natural beauty with Katy Trail running throughout the neighborhood.
