Highland Park, located approximately three miles north of downtown Dallas, is a “town within a city.” One of the most sought-after and wealthiest communities in the country, its tree-lined streets and many parks are a result of the original town plan developed by renowned landscape architect Wilbur David Cook, who also designed Beverly Hills. The town, which is home to about 9,000 residents, was named “Highland Park” because of its higher elevation compared to the surrounding area and because 20% of developed land was reserved for park space. Highland Park offers highly respected public schools and exceptional shopping and dining. Also well known for its quality housing, the town is home to the Dallas Country Club . In Highland Park, involved citizens and active families create a neighborhood environment that is rarely found in today’s world.
