Our Neighborhood History

While the history of Oak Park Estates indicates a neighborhood association, crime watch committee and garden club existed as far back as the early 1960's, the current Oak Park Estates Neighborhood Association was officially incorporated in January 2008, after establishing bylaws and electing Association officers. 


Oak Park Estates & Druid Hills

The Druid Hills Neighborhood, another hidden gem in Dallas consists of about 285 homes.  The Druid Hills and Oak Park Estates neighborhoods  are intertwined because in several cases one development ends and another begins on the same block. Druid Hills connects Oak Park Estates to Hampton Road. to the west and Ledbetter Drive to the South. Druid Hills neighbors are welcome to join in OPENA meetings and activities. The two neighborhoods represent approximately 875 homes.
