Officially known as The Town of Highland Park, this is truly a city within a city. Highland Park is just over 2 square miles of prime real estate in Dallas County, bordered by the City of Dallas. It is located near Southern Methodist University and the Dallas Financial District. Highland Park has its own police and fire departments, as well as a beautiful public library. There are 6 parks with amenities such as pools, ponds, playgrounds, tennis courts, and walking/jogging paths. The parks are located along Turtle Creek and Hackberry Creek.
Amazing shopping is located within minutes in the City of Dallas, but Highland Park Village is a favorite of residents. HP Village is an upscale shopping center located on 10 acres. For serious shopping and fine dining, Highland Park Village is the place to go.
Though houses in the area generally sell for over $1 million dollars, Highland Park has a low property tax rate and an equally low crime rate. Both the fire and police departments have an extremely fast response time. As to educational opportunities, Highland Park schools are some of the best in the nation, churning out bright, successful students every year.
