Casa View, Dallas facts for kids

Kids Encyclopedia Facts

Casa View is a residential neighborhood in Dallas, Texas, United States, located near White Rock Lake in the northeastern portion of the city. According to the Greater Casa View Alliance, the Greater Casa View area is bordered by Buckner Boulevard, Garland Road, I-635 and Oates to the city line of neighboring Mesquite. The area has traditionally been nearly synonymous with the adjoining Casa Linda neighborhood but is gaining momentum in its own right and was named by D Magazine as one of "5 Neighborhoods on the Rise" in its July 2016 issue.

In the 1960s Casa View was mostly White and Protestant and Roman Catholic. By the early 2010s it became mostly Hispanic. Today, Casa View is a diverse and progressive neighborhood with a high concentration of single-family homes, including one of the city's largest enclaves of mid-century modern homes designed by famed architect Cliff May.
