It has some of the trendy appeal of both Oak Lawn and Uptown, and also some of the most spectacular natural beauty still left in Dallas.
Turtle Creek Parkway is a beautiful boulevard winding through the urban neighborhood, but busy Lemmon Ave. also bisects the area. The Katy Trail runs through Turtle Creek, and much of the public land is like a park even if not officially designated as parkland. Finally, several of the iconic old streets that loom large in Dallas history run through Turtle Creek, including Cedar Springs, Maple, Routh, Fairmount, Wycliff and Douglas Ave
