Turtle Creek

With neighbors like The Crescent, Kalita Humphreys Theater and the Rosewood Mansion, it’s no wonder that Turtle Creek is considered one of the best addresses in a city known for upscale living. The Turtle Creek neighborhood, which also includes the Oak Lawn area, is reminiscent of the Upper East Side in Manhattan, featuring landscaped greenbelts, Reverchon Park with its popular baseball fields and namesake Turtle Creek–all surrounded by luxury high-rise buildings. At the center lie nine-acre Lee Park and the newly renovated Arlington Hall, which have hosted picnics, parades and weddings for over 100 years. And with destination hotels such as the Warwick Melrose and Hotel ZaZa, elegant shopping at Stanley Korshak and fine dining at Parigi and Al Biernat’s, Turtle Creek continually attracts residents and visitors from around the world to this bucolic park within a city. While Texas may be known for its blue bonnets, Turtle Creek is revered for the annual burst of color that arrives each spring when hundreds of azalea bushes spontaneously bloom throughout the scenic park and greenbelts. This area is one the prime photo spots in the city.
