Addison Pacesetters Discover Hidden Dallas - Part 2

Real Estate Agent with United Real Estate TX #0552717

Addison Pacesetters (Addison, Texas residents 50+ years of age) participated in a tour of Dallas's "hidden gems" in and around the city.  On September 13, 2017, a few dozen Pacesetters boarded a tour bus, not knowing where we were headed. Only the tour leader - Jeanine, from Dallas By Chocolate,  had the itinerary. Even our Pacesetter coordinator, Deena Hermes, didn't know where we were headed.

After the first stop, where we couldn't do much more than gawk, the second stop afforded us an opportunity to get out and commune with nature and art.

You can see some of the Lakeside Historic District from the street, but the real hidden gems require a short walk. The LHD is "a collection of early 20th Century homesflanking Exall Lake and Turtule Creek between Beverly Drive and Wycliff. Initially planned by Wilbur David Cook Jr. and subsequently completed by George Kessler, Highland Park was promoted as 'the south's finest residence city.' Many of the most prominent architects of the day designed home here. Its residents have played significant roles in the development of both Dallas and Texas."

The bear sculptures were a gift to the town of Highland Park from the Harlan Crow family in 1995. Harlan is the son of Trammel Crow. Lakeside Park

To find the bears, locate the waterfall near 4601 Lakeside Drive, then cross the pedestrian footbridge. 

We boarded the bus again and headed off to the third hidden gem on the tour.
