Description:

The Oak Park Estates and Kiestwood Neighborhood Associations will hold a FOURTH Clean-up Drive of 2021 during the third weekend in October!  The event is held this weekend to clean up our streets in advance of the Passport Oak Cliff event which occurs on the following weekend! We want to welcome visitors to our neighborhoods and greet them with streets that are free of trash and litter!

Volunteers can come to our booth at the Kiestwood Village Shopping Center anytime between 7 am to 9 am to pick up supplies and get street assignments. You can then go out (either on your own or with a partner) anytime over the weekend to pick up trash and litter on the assigned streets.  Just bring the trash you collect back to the designated drop off location in the shopping center parking lot.  Please let us know if you plan to volunteer by sending us an email at oakparkestates1@gmail.com. Thank you!

​​​​Oak Park Estates Neighborhood Association (OPENA) ​

Serving the Oak Park Estates & Druid Hills Neighborhoods - Better Together!

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”. ​​
