Program Description:

You will learn all you need to know about the Dallas 311 service and you will be also be able to access select city services at the City on the Go! Mobile Unit which will be onsite for our residents. Do you have questions like “Why does my 311 Request get closed out with no action?” Stephen Walker who helps the city manage the program will be on hand to tell you what happens when you submit your request and answer all of your other questions about 311. Do you need to report any issues or need a service that you can only get at City Hall, but can’t get there? Then this is your opportunity to take care of it without leaving the neighborhood! 

About Dallas 311

311 is the City of Dallas’ customer service support center designed to help residents resolve non-emergency issues around their neighborhood. 311 receives and inputs Service Requests, which are then relayed to the appropriate department for it to get resolved and provide status updates as necessary. Citizens may also review the current status of their Service Requests by phone, web, or mobile app. The 311 Customer Service Center serves as an intermediary to make sure there is clear, organized communication between the citizen customer and the responding department. Residents may file a service request 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.

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”. ​​
