East of White Rock Lake, which covers more than 1,200 acres and was formed in 1911, is a host of multi-flavored neighborhoods, plus the beloved Dallas Arboretum and Botanical Garden with the Rory Meyers Children’s Adventure Gardens. Forest Hills rises from the lake with larger homes and lots. Little Forest Hills is a funky, artistically minded bungalow community that loves to throw vivacious parades. Casa Linda, anchored by Casa Linda Plaza, uses the Spanish language as an influence for its street names. Mature trees fill the ’50s-developed neighborhood and the surrounding mid-priced housing areas of Eastwood, Lake Park Estates, and Lochwood.
Bath House Cultural Center, just off the lake, features local art exhibits and plays. Public Tenison Golf Course, and Samuell Grand Park, with its summer Shakespeare Festivals, are close by as well.
