Park Cities

About Park Cities

Cultural, collegiate, and classy, Highland Park and University Park play host to Dallas’ flagship university and some of the most walkable streets and high-end shopping in the city.

Catch up on your reading while taking in the beautiful SMU campus or plenty of urban greenspace, jog or bike over to the Katy Trail, sip an old fashioned egg cream at the Highland Park Soda Fountain (established 1912), or enjoy some of the finest dining around at restaurants like the highly acclaimed Abacus and Cafe Madrid. If you’re more of a residential gourmand, nearby Trader Joe’s and Central Market can help you stock the kitchen for meals to impress. And when there are places to go and people to see, you’re only a couple minutes from 75, the Tollway, or Mockingbird Station.

Do some yoga, go to church, grab a tea, take a walk—the Park Cities carry with them a reputation for impressive architecture, nice neighbors, and leisurely lifestyles. It’s easy to see why everyone who lives here is happy to call the place home.
