Money magazine called it one of the top 10 best big-city neighborhoods in America and noted its beautiful setting on the rolling hills next to White Rock Lake. Lakewood is a community that embraces nature, with that sparkling lake and its 15 miles of trails and many tributaries serving as a giant playground to those who live and visit here. Many of the neighborhoods’ iconic homes were built in the 1920s — mixed today with architecturally sensitive charmers and the occasional cool contemporary.
