Lochwood is a great neighborhood in the Lake Highlands area of East Dallas. The Lippit Branch stream goes through the middle of this East Dallas neighborhood and creates a lovely walking path that defines the neighborhood. Mature trees and lush green acts as a backdrop for the homes built in this neighborhood as early as the 1950’s and as recent as the 1980’s.
Lochwood, like many other East Dallas neighborhoods such as the Lake and Garden District or Merriman Park are very community oriented and offers a wonderful opportunity for young families and people looking for a little more space. This neighborhood boasts homes that range close to 3,000 square feet and it’s not uncommon to get a lot that is much larger than other neighborhoods in East Dallas.

Built in 2006, the Lochwood Library is a feat of modern engineering. Featuring a fully functioning theater, lots of windows and natural light, the library becomes a gathering point and host to local speakers and authors as well as the community at large. The architecture of the building adds aesthetic appeal to the neighborhood and features beautiful views of the established Lochwood neighborhood surrounding the building.

A neighborhood that is known for parks and lush trees needs to have a great neighborhood park and that is Lochwood Park to this East Dallas neighborhood.

Just beyond the neighborhood boundaries is one of Dallas’ largest park areas in White Rock Lake.
