Welcome to Highland Park, Park Cities, and Lakewood

Hip, bustling, and affluent neighborhoods featuring tree-lined streets and charming homes
 
Located in central Dallas County, these three neighborhoods feature an array of impressive estates and charming cottages. 
 
Named for its prime position overlooking downtown Dallas, Highland Park is 2.2 square miles of luxury. More than 8,500 moneyed residents call Highland Park home, and the town’s multi-million dollar homes are many. 
 
Highland Park is a part of Park Cities, which also encompasses University Park. Together these two suburbs comprise the wealthiest patch of real estate in the Dallas-Fort Worth region. There’s ample green space to enjoy, and the George W. Bush Presidential Center is located here, as is Highland Park Village, a high-end shopping mall offering designer boutiques.
 
Only four miles away, laid-back Lakewood sprawls along the west shore of White Rock Lake, surrounded by hiking and biking trails, boathouses, wildflower areas, and picnic spots. The Dallas Arboretum is located here and offers botanical gardens, sculpture exhibitions, and concerts.

People & Lifestyle

Dallas’s wealthiest residents live in these communities, and the population here ranges from affluent families to celebrities, politicians, and company CEOs.
 

Dining, Shopping & Entertainment

A primary focus of leisure time in Highland Park is the premier luxury shopping experience found in Highland Park Village. The upscale shopping plaza, located at the southwest corner of Mockingbird Lane and Preston Road in Highland Park, was the first self-contained shopping center in America. Declared a National Historic Landmark in 2000, the Spanish-style shopping center is a mecca of upscale retail—Hermès, Dior, and Chanel all have shops here.
 
Several events are hosted regularly at Scarlet Reagan, an art gallery on Oak Street, and there are many restaurants to choose from in this area. Local favorites include Chelsea Corner, a popular spot for burgers, pizza, cocktails, and cold beer, and Georgie by Curtis Stone, the illustrious chef’s first non-LA restaurant, which combines a retail butcher shop and fine dining.
 

Things to Do

Activities abound in this region. At Klyde Warren Park, a 5.2-acre public park, citizens congregate to enjoy the landscape. The park sees more than one million visitors each year.
 
The Dallas Arboretum and Botanical Gardens, a 66-acre botanical garden located on the southeastern shore of White Rock Lake, is considered one of the top botanical gardens in the U.S. This site is also home to many weddings and private events throughout the year. 
 
The American Airlines Center, a multi-purpose arena located in the Victory Park neighborhood in downtown Dallas, serves as the home of the Dallas Mavericks and the Dallas Stars.
 
And the Immersive Van Gogh Dallas exhibit strives to highlight the unique architecture of its spaces while integrating influences from its history and community.
