This website has been established to keep the Merriman Park Estates ("MPE") residents and the potential residents informed of the happenings in and around our neighborhood.
For the MPE residents we have a perpetual monthly calendar detailing important meetings, events, and RISD school holidays. There are sections devoted to each of our neighborhood clubs and our neighborhood schools. In addition there is a helpful phone number page, a listing of neighborhood email contacts, city and state information specific to MPE, recycling and trash pick up schedules, as well as, maps, internet links and amenities close by.
For those potential neighbors, MPE would like to introduce itself: MPE is a well maintained and quiet neighborhood of individually designed homes with character. As this neighborhood was originally established in 1958, we have long time residents, as well as, new ones. A beautiful park is located along Merriman Parkway with "fun" and recently updated playground equipment. The trees and landscaping throughout the neighborhood are well established, mature and beautiful. When the dogwoods and azaleas are in bloom, it is a pretty site to behold.
MPE is in a great location with easy access to Downtown Dallas and close to major highways (Central Expressway (I-75), LBJ Freeway (I-635) and Northwest Hwy). There are DART rail stations nearby. A new DART station is open at the corner of Skillman and Walnut Hill. One is located at Park Lane and Greenville Avenue. The other is located near the intersection of Northwest Hwy. and Lawther Dr. The next DART station that affects our neighborhood is at the intersection of Skillman and LBJ. While MPE is in the Dallas city limits, this neighborhood is part of the Richardson Independent School District ("RISD"). Northpark Mall, Walmart, Sam's Club, SuperTarget, Tom Thumb, numerous specialty stores, restaurants, entertainment and great churches are all located within three miles of our neighborhood. In addition, the White Rock Hike & Bike Trail passes through our park, the Fair Oaks Tennis Center is adjacent to the park, and White Rock Lake is nearby.
For old residents and new, living in the MPE neighborhood offers the opportunity to meet neighbors, make friends, beautify our area, learn new things, serve on the neighborhood board, protect property values and participate in one or all of our active neighborhood clubs. All this is offered to our neighborhood through the hard work and dedication of residents of Merriman Park Estates. This just isn't a place to live...it is our home! We hope you will consider making it your home by becoming a member of the Merriman Park Estates Neighborhood Association.
