Where is Oak Cliff? Here is a map

Our cover story from a couple of months ago asked, “where is Oak Cliff?” And we found it is a huge geographical area that takes about a third of the total landmass of Dallas. But because of interstate highways and other divides, that huge area is far from unified.

The relatively small part of Oak Cliff that we cover generally is referred to as “north Oak Cliff” these days, and it’s pretty much in line with the neighborhoods that are members of the Old Oak Cliff Conservation League.

Stevens Park neighbor Jerry Beech of the North Oak Cliff United Police Patrol created this Google map of the league’s member neighborhoods. It’s pretty handy, especially if you’re new to the neighborhood or one of us who stays within a 2-mile radius of home most of the time. Now you know where Ruthmeade Place is.
