While they may not be official neighborhoods, here are some areas you may encounter while you're searching.
Rose Gardens: This area is farther from I-635 than other neighborhoods. You'll have to travel farther to get out of town, but with such a peaceful neighborhood, why would you want to?
Spring Oaks: This neighborhood puts you close to some of the town's shopping centers and local businesses.
Hickory Tree Estates: Close to the northern edge of Balch Springs and I-635, this area gives you fast access to the neighboring town of Mesquite, where many people travel for work and play.
Dallas is a large, bustling, major city, complete with bumper-to-bumper traffic, a sense of big-city anonymity and large crowds.

With only a handful of grocery stores and a single library, Balch Springs is the type of town where you'll run into folks again and again -- so brush up on saying, "Howdy!" and embrace the small-town conviviality.
