Welcome to Highland Park
Highland Park –– Known as one of the most sought after neighborhoods in the country, it’s the small-town charms, nationally recognized public schools, and exquisite residences that draw residents to its promenade avenues. Just minutes from downtown Dallas, the 2.26 square mile township was originally planned in the early 1900s to duplicate the magic of Beverly Hills with winding streets, creeks and manicured parks that make up twenty percent of city creating an oasis for all ages to enjoy. Hundreds of azalea bushes blaze a brilliant pink trail through the neighborhood streets filled with kids riding bikes to school or skating to one of the nearby swimming pools. Public Safely is of the utmost importance with local police, fire and emergency services providing immediate responses making this one of the safest area along with it’s neighbor University Park. Whether you are looking for a sprawling multi acre estate or a bungalow, if you demand the best in life, you will find it here.
