Our Home. Our Roots. Our Family.

Mission: The Oak Park Estates Neighborhood Association (OPENA) provides a forum and active support group for the residents of both Oak Park Estates and Druid Hills in order to make our neighborhoods a safer, more attractive, and better place to live.


History: Development of Oak Park Estates began in 1954 and Druid Hills in 1955. Druid Hills was developed by A.B. McDaniel and Oak Park Estates was developed by Vernon and James Smith, brothers who were local architects, and developers. Oak Park Estates was marketed simply as “Oak Cliff’s finest neighborhood”.


Today:  Oak Park Estates has approximately 570 homes and Druid Hills has about 290 homes. The area is beautifully complimented by rolling terrain, a creek and towering trees. Oak Park Estates and Druid Hills are "hidden treasures" in Dallas and both are within walking distance to Kiest Park, one of Dallas' largest public park facilities. It is only a 10-minute commute to Downtown Dallas, which makes it very convenient to the central business corridor. The area is still one of Oak Cliff’s hidden treasures as Dallas “pocket neighborhoods”. ​​
