Fitness and Health Care

Many know Dallas for its sports teams – the Cowboys, Mavericks, Stars, Rangers, and FC Dallas – but plenty of North Texans like to keep in playing shape, too.

That can mean playing tennis or taking a walk or jog at one of the parks covered in the neighborhood pages of this handbook or taking advantage of other fitness opportunities (see below).

But if such efforts lead to injury or fail to stave off illness, quality care from the top-ranked hospitals in Dallas is available nearby. Find Emergency Rooms that are open 24/7 and provide a network of physicians who are experts in complex care. Three of those hospitals look to the health and well-being of the children in our neighborhoods, so there is no need to travel to another city with a sick child. Scattered throughout our neighborhoods are numerous clinics for urgent care.
