Western Park is a neighborhood in the Southwest-Redbird, Oak Cliff area of Dallas, Texas, south of Cockrell Hill, Texas. It is predominantly Hispanic. Western Park has different regions including Western Park, Kenwood to the south, the Highland Road Village Apartments and the Village Green to the east, and Mountain View Park to the north.

Geography[edit]

Even though the Dallas area is mostly flat, Western Park is built on a large hill, and has all kinds of trees (even small palm trees) growing in the area. Downtown Dallas would be visible, but the trees go over the neighborhood, blocking its view.

Boundaries[edit]

Western Park's boundaries are unofficial, but the approximate boundaries are West Kiest Boulevard to the South, Duncanville Road to the West, South Walton Walker Boulevard on the Southwest, South Cockrell Hill Road on the East (including apartments to the east) and West Illinois Avenue to the north (including neighborhood north of Illinois)
