South Dallas at a Glance

South Dallas is an area in Dallas, Texas located west of the Trinity River and south of Interstate 30 and made up of a mixture of residential and commercial areas, suitable for small and large businesses. The revitalization of South Dallas has become a recent focus of area organizations such as Habitat for Humanity and Rebuilding Together Dallas, in an effort to make this part of Dallas more appealing to prospective homeowners and new businesses. With its many historic homes and buildings, South Dallas has a lot of untapped potential, has only been realized relatively recently. Several South Dallas districts worth mentioning include Cedars, Grand Park South and Deep Ellum. These districts feature a lot of new development, both residential and commercial, including new retail space, condos, apartments, restaurants and more. South Dallas is also home to Fair Park, a 277-acre recreational and educational complex which hosts the State Fair of Texas every year. Fair Park is also home to nine museums, six performance facilities, a lagoon and the largest Ferris wheel in North America. The historic Cotton Bowl Stadium, one of the oldest and largest stadiums in the U.S., can also be found in South Dallas. Every year it hosts the Red River Rivalry between the University of Texas and the University of Oklahoma and the annual Heart of Dallas Bowl Game. While several major highways and interstates intersect with South Dallas, up until 2009 the area was largely underserved by Dallas’ public transportation system. In 2009 and 2010, the DART Green Line light rail opened at three different stations in South Dallas, including Fair Park Station, MLK Station and Hatcher Station, providing residents a transit link between downtown Dallas and Fair Park.
