Lyon Park, just a short distance from Clarendon, is one of North Arlington's most popular neighborhoods. It's an extremely walkable neighborhood, as this tour shows. The 300-acre neighborhood, bounded by Arlington Boulevard on two sides, North Irving and North 10th Street, has a population of 4,775, according to the 1990 census. Within its borders are a shopping center at Pershing Drive and Arlington Boulevard and a dozen restaurants, including EatBar and Tallulah's in the space of the old "Whitey's."
Lyon Park is particularly known for mail-order homes known as "Sears houses" built in the 1920s and 1930s.
It has a very active civic association. The Lyon Park Community Center, located on three acres of park land, holds up to 150 people and can be used for receptions, dinners, and parties. The community center and park are owned by Lyon Park citizens, and is the only private park open to the public.
