Welcome to Oak Cliff, TX

In the rapidly growing Bishop Arts District, discover some of the finest dishes in Dallas at Hattie’s, Boulevardier, Tillman’s Roadhouse, Café Veracruz, Bolsa, and habitual D Best winner, Lucia. The close-knit Oak Cliff community hosts monthly events which draw in large crowds, with events ranging from Parades, cook outs, Wine Tastings, and the wildly popular annual Bastille on Bishop, a celebration of everything French in July.

Oak Cliff – MARKET STATS

School District

School choices abound for families in the area. There are several Dallas ISD elementary, middle and high schools and access to public magnet schools such as the nationally acclaimed Booker T. Washington High School for the Performing and Visual Arts and the Yvonne A. Ewell Townview Magnet Center.  Private schools include Bishop Dunne Catholic School and Tyler Street Christian Academy, and there are several colleges including Paul Quinn College and the University of North Texas at Dallas.  Homebuyers looking for a place to put down roots will find a variety of options in Oak Cliff neighborhoods.

Green Spaces

The area also offers unlimited opportunities to play outdoors—whether that means fishing, hiking and visiting the playground at Kidd Springs Park, an afternoon on the links at newly renovated Stevens Park Golf Course or a round of tennis at one of the many neighborhood parks. Families will also appreciate the opportunity to take a walk on the wild side, with easy access to the Dallas Zoo, one of the jewels of Oak Cliff.  Two new and newly renovated bridges connect Oak Cliff to Downtown, launching neighborhoods brimming with opportunities for commercial and residential development. Trinity Groves, the upcoming Trinity Forest golf course and the trails and parks that make up the entire Trinity Corridor provide an enormous, verdant playground where residents from both sides of the river come together.

Lifestyle

One of the first established neighborhoods in Dallas, Oak Cliff is known for enjoying both a rich history and a modern, energetic vibe.  Located southwest of downtown Dallas, Oak Cliff began as a 320-acre farm purchased in 1886 by business leaders who intended to develop the land into a neighborhood for the city’s elite. Today, its hilly topography, beautiful lakes and lush greenery still create the perfect backdrop for residents looking to live in a natural setting within easy reach of big city amenities. Oak Cliff consists of several neighborhoods including the Stevens Park and Kessler Park areas, the Winnetka Heights Historic District and several others. 

Architecture

The wide selection of cottages and bungalows make the Oak Cliff area a great destination for those looking to renovate or rebuild. Many preservationists have moved into the area, updating Craftsman and Mediterranean style homes while keeping the architectural integrity intact.  Those seeking a contemporary feel find that new developments such as Kessler Reserve combine a pastoral setting with modern style and convenience. 

Shopping and Dining

At its heart, Oak Cliff is a community that embraces its cultural identity. The area has been home to a long list of musicians including T-Bone Walker, Michael Martin Murphy, Stevie Ray Vaughan and Ray Wylie Hubbard, and it’s been the inspiration for songs by Edie Brickell and B.W. Stevenson. 

Their music is a soulful soundtrack played throughout the famed Bishop Arts neighborhood. Head down on a Saturday afternoon and wander through a cool collection of coffee houses, restaurants, galleries, boutiques and bakeries that draw fans from all over the city. Settle in for brunch at Oddfellows or make a reservation early for dinner at the chef-owned Lucia, then indulge in a treat from Dude, Sweet Chocolate. The area’s annual Bastille on Bishop festival includes strolling accordion players, can-can dancers, food and wine, all in celebration of Dallas’ original French settlers who came to Oak Cliff to create a “Utopian Community.”  

Community

Throughout Oak Cliff, neighborhood associations and community groups welcome visitors and residents of all backgrounds—singles, families, artisans, professionals, empty-nesters and more. Meet up with neighbors at soccer games, community theater and fun events such as the Kessler Krawl—an annual cocktail party that brings hundreds of residents together for a special evening touring homes and toasting Oak Cliff.
