Turtle Creek, Dallas facts for kids
Turtle Creek has also become an adopted nickname for the Oak Lawn neighborhood, though never an official one. The nickname also sometimes applies to a spillover of the Uptown area, which has become the official moniker for the area between downtown Dallas and Oak Lawn beginning in the 1980s. (In actuality, however, Uptown itself is a part of the Oak Lawn district, as is the Turtle Creek neighborhood.)
The name Turtle Creek also graces a number of business and real estate properties in the area, many of which have addresses away from Turtle Creek Boulevard. There is even a Turtle Creek News which is published twice weekly and circulated in Uptown, Oak Lawn and Highland Park.
The Dallas Morning News is the Dallas citywide newspaper.
Park Cities People is a local community newspaper.
