Greenway Parks is a distinctive Dallas neighborhood, to say the least. It’s included in The National Register of Historic Places, has received The Neighborhood Achievement Award from Preservation Dallas and was chosen as one of Texas’ 25 Best Places by the Texas Society of Architects. That’s some pedigree. It’s also nestled between Bluffview and the Park Cities, minutes from Love Field and the Southwestern Medical District: location, location, location.

It was designed in 1927 by David R. Williams, in the English tradition of having a “common-green,” a green space for use by the neighborhood community. This was a novel concept for Americans in the 1920’s, so you can say Greenway Parks was setting the pace back then and has continued to do so throughout history. Architects of note, like O’Neill Ford and Howard Meyer, have designed significant homes in the neighborhood, it’s zoned as a Conservation District and the HOA ensures not only is your home protected but you will also have a lot of fun if you can find a home for sale. And we did, on one of the largest lots in Greenway Parks.
