Parking leaves something to be desired, but there are so many easily accessible places in this area, you never need to leave your neighborhood. The patrons and service industry professionals are all friendly and welcoming. Safe beautiful quiet neighborhoods with tree lined streets. A bustling exciting night life is just around the corner.

There are a lot of nice areas in Oak Lawn with friendly people. It is very convenient to shopping, dining, downtown, etc. Pretty much anything you need is very close by. The only problem is, like most of Dallas, there are some areas close by that are not as nice. Oak Lawn is pretty walkable, but as you are walking you will see litter and homeless people.
My overall experience of my area is great. I like my locations because everything is closed by me. When I didn't have a car I used to go to the little store across the street , if I was hungry there's a Jack in The Box in front of the gas station next to my apartments . There's also a park just two blocks a way there's restaurants were family's can go . The only thing I didn't like about the park is that there used to be homeless people and a lot of trash, well know I have seen a change is more cleaner than 2-3 years ago and less homeless people. The other thing I like about were I live is that most of the people knows each other. Yes of course we not a perfect neighborhood, but over the years we have gotten better . Know we have new Apartments new people coming in. The most thing I like about my location is that I live closed by Down Town Dallas.
