Mountain Creek Apartments for Rent(hide neighborhood information)
A new master-planned community, Mountain Creek in western Dallas takes advantage of the wide open spaces and beautiful scenery on the southeastern side of Mountain Lake. The neighborhood was built in the late 2000s, and the large, comfortable houses have well-kept yards on tree-lined streets. Some houses have views of Mountain Creek Lake that residents enjoy from their front porches.
This Texas community is in zip code 75236 and is west of South Merrifield Road. The neighborhood entrances are on Capella Park Avenue and Clay Academy Boulevard. There are no through streets. The nearest development is Dallas Baptist University a mile north. Otherwise, the neighborhood is surrounded by unimproved land.
Mountain Creek Lake and nearby Mountain Creek Lake Park offer many recreational opportunities. The lake is a popular catch-and-release spot, and the Mountain Creek Lake Park Trail, which runs east of the park, follows a river. Nine miles of hiking trails are nearby at the Cedar Ridge Preserve, which also has butterfly gardens, picnic areas, and a native plant nursery.
A quick drive over Mountain Creek Lake on Pioneer Parkway takes residents to a grocery store, restaurants, bank branches, and convenience shops. The neighborhood is also close to Mountain View College and the Dallas-Fort Worth International Airport.
Downtown Dallas is less than 20 minutes east of Mountain Creek, a reasonable commute to the city’s business and entertainment center. The city center is home to large companies such as Bank of America, American Airlines, and JP Morgan Chase. The restored brick warehouses of the West End Historic District in downtown Dallas are filled with popular restaurants and shops.
