Highland Park, along with its neighbor University Park, make up the enclave of Dallas known as the Park Cities. Located about 3 miles north of Downtown Dallas, Highland Park is one of the most sought-after communities in Texas. The beautifully landscaped town features broad, tree-lined streets and exquisitely designed homes in many eclectic styles, giving it an old-world charm. The town owes its beauty to its developer – renowned landscape architect Wilbur David Cook, who also designed Beverly Hills. Today the town is known for upscale shopping and dining, and has a strong sense of community, giving Highland Park a wonderful neighborhood feel.
