The C-Streets is located in East Dallas on the southern end of White Rock Lake just south of Lakewood. It is generally bounded by Gaston Ave. on the north, LaVista Dr. on the south, Brendenwood Dr. on the West and Grand Ave. on the east. The main streets in the neighborhood are Coronado, Casa Loma and Clayton, thus the nickname of “C-Streets”. The area is actually made up of two subdivisions: Gastonwood and Coronado Hills.
Gastonwood is named after William Henry Gaston, a prominent figure in Dallas early years prior to 1900. The developers of the area were intent on creating a livable area with open spaces. Large front yard, uncluttered by utility poles were part of that design. The homes in area represent a large variety of styles mainly due to the fact that the area was built out very slowly over time starting in the 1918 and running through the 1950s. On the Western side of the neighborhood you can see Arts and Crafts Period homes (Craftsman, Tudor and Prairie styles). As you more eastward, homes evolve through the Austin Stone mission style to the Minimal Traditional style that became so popular in the 1950s. The neighborhood offers a wonderful cross section of architectural styles all built on large lots with oversized front yards. Despite changes in builders and architectural styles, the front yard set-backs have been maintained throughout the neighborhood making it look today just as it did 50 years ago.
Since 1981, a single neighborhood association has served the area, the Gastonwood-Coronado Hills Neighborhood Association or GCHNA. The association is very active with several events each month. An active Crime Watch group has recently started an Extended Neighborhood Patrol program in order to provide additional police service to the area.
