The words “quintessential neighborhood” come to mind when describing the tree-lined streets of Highland Park. A quick drive through the town’s 2.24 square miles of prime real estate reveals manicured lawns, iconic architecture, pocket parks, playing fields, and the revered Highland Park Village--one of America’s foremost luxury retail and dining destinations.
Located just 3 miles north of Dallas’ bustling business district, Highland Park offers a vibrant and friendly community centered on the nationally recognized Highland Park Independent School District. Here, students, families, and generations of devoted alumni gather under Friday night lights in the fall to watch The Highland Park Scots football team march toward one of many state championships while the Highlander Band and Highland Belles Drill Team entertain during half-time.
Another iconic connector in this luxury enclave is Turtle Creek, a small tributary of the Trinity River which flows through the neighborhood and is the perfect spot to meet for a spring picnic, a morning run, or picturesque photos for the holiday greeting card. The 3.5-mile Katy Trail also runs through Highland Park and is a popular destination for hiking, biking, and dog walking, with places to stop and grab a snack or beverage along the way. Twenty percent of Highland Park is dedicated to park space, providing plenty of areas for children, grandchildren, and family pets to run and play. Residents will also appreciate eight tennis courts and a town swimming pool where summer evenings include family-friendly dive-in movies at sundown. The Town of Highland Park, which has its own police, fire, and emergency departments, is home to the Dallas Country Club, the oldest such club in the state of Texas.
Home to professional athletes, artists, entrepreneurs, professors, and community leaders, Highland Park offers a beautiful and friendly backdrop where residents can enjoy a comfortable lifestyle while making lifelong friends.
Highland Park and University Park together make up the Park Cities. The Town of Highland Park, located between the Dallas North Tollway and U.S. Highway 75, has approximately 8,900 residents. Addresses in the area can be designated as either Dallas, Texas or Highland Park, Texas.
