The neighborhood is full of extremely diverse restaurants and people. The trails are always full of people, promoting a healthy lifestyle. There are many condos that always have units available for moving into. The streets always have bikers, runners, and people simply strolling and enjoying the trails and many shops in Uptown. Uptown is very family friendly and carry and sense of safety and community. I plan on living in Uptown for a very long time!

The criminal element is everywhere but the 8 years I've lived in the Uptown area has been very pleasant. I was raised in south Dallas fair Park area where every other night something bad was going on. Fortunately I've been able to raise and care for my 3 children in a more decent environment. What I dislike about Uptown is the grocery stores. Supply and demand! The stores are never fully stocked. The area is steady growing.
I like Uptown because it is diverse, friendly neighbors, it is safe and offers something for everyone. We have the Katy Trail, Oak Lawn Park, and Turtle Creek.

One thing I would change about Uptown, traffic flow. Because it is so popular, we have many visitors, traffic is a little overwhelming at times.
