      The Meadows is a neighborhood in the northern portion of Dallas, Texas.  The neighborhood was originally the Glen Lakes Golf Course prior to its development into residential housing during the 1960's.  The Meadows extends from Meadow Road on the north, to, but not including, the Willow Creek Apartments on the East, to Walnut Hill Lane on the South, and to Airline on the West.

    The Meadows Neighborhood Association was originally formed in the 1970ís. It's purpose was to teach, inform, and work with the city and the Glen Lakes developer to adopt restrictions on the property of The Glen Lakes Golf Course. The outcome of the chartered task was successful, and then the Association became dormant. With our desirable location, the quality of homes and our low crime, and the need to protect and enhance our property values, re-activation of the Association is more important than ever.

      The deterioration of the communal brick wall along Walnut Hill Lane ultimately led to the reactivation of the Neighborhood Association.  John Baker spearheaded a drive to raise the necessary funds to repair the wall.  Those generous enough to contribute to this effort are recognized on the wall of thanks.  

      Now, the Meadows Neighborhood Association is a voluntary organization that serves its members by acting as a resource to hear neighborhood-related issues and facilitate responses as appropriate, with a goal of enhancing the desirability of The Meadows as a residential neighborhood. The Association's board of directors will be responsible for directing the affairs of the Association, but it is anticipated that the Association's members will also actively participate in the Association activities.

Our Goals

  1. Foster a sense of community among residents of the neighborhood.
  2. Preserve and enhance the property value and improve the quality of life in our neighborhood.
  3. Assure that neighboring properties affecting our property values are maintained at or above City of Dallas Code requirements.
  4. Support anti-crime activities.
  5. Support neighborhood beautification activities and projects.
  6. Work with other neighborhood associations for the benefit of our community.
  7. Communicate with our members and neighbors using open meetings, newsletters and the website.
