Greetings and welcome to the Casa Linda Estates.  Casa Linda Estates is a neighborhood of about 450 homes built during the 1940s and 1950.  The large lots, mature trees, and relaxed atmosphere make Casa Linda Estates a wonderful place to live.

In the year 1910 the town of Dallas, Texas was suffering from a water shortage. So a dam was built across White Rock Creek creating White Rock Lake. The lake was also used to cool the condenser at an electric steam generating plant. During World War II, after Rommel’s Afrika Korps was routed in North Africa, German prisoners of war were held in barracks at Winfrey Point on White Rock Lake. By the 1930s the CCC (Civilian Conservation Corps) began turning the land surrounding White Rock Lake into a park. The area around the lake became prime Dallas real estate with highly desired residential areas including Forest Hills, Little Forest Hills, Lakewood, Old Lake Highlands, Casa Linda and Lake Park Estates. Current day White Rock Lake Park is surrounded by a 9.33 mile biking, hiking and running trail. A section of the trail runs by the Dallas Arboretum and Botanical Garden. You can fish and float your boat in the lake, but swimming is not permitted.

 Welcome again to Casa Linda Estates!
