Welcome to Lakewood Heights

A walkable town with a great location and an active community
 
Incorporated almost a hundred years ago in 1914, Lakewood Heights currently estimates its population at 2,705 people. Expanding and developing through the early 1900s, the area now is bordered by Abrams Road to the east, Skillman to the west, Monticello to the north, and Richmond to the south. It started with a collection of craftsman-style bungalows before Tudors were added, and some larger, more modern buildings continue to be constructed.
 
The area is known for its strong sense of community, active neighborhood association, tall trees, and stellar walkability. Throughout the year, the city enjoys various local events and activities. In addition, it is not far from downtown Dallas and within walking distance of the biggest urban lake in the country, White Rock Lake, giving it an ideal location. Residents have easy access to the bustling city and the great outdoors, with everything from shopping to hiking readily available.
