Your neighbors are leaders in society, business and politics — plus executives, influencers, pro athletes and generations of families — in these sophisticated cities. The quintessential American neighborhood, Highland Park was created to be a respite from the stresses of early 19th-century life. Rich in history and legacy, University Park is home to SMU, considered the “Ivy of the South” and a great place for kids to attend summer camps and athletic events. Located just a few miles from downtown Dallas, homes in the Park Cities range from quaint cottages to large estates — all located within blocks of great local and global shopping in unique neighborhood centers.

Explore all that the elegant life has to offer and find your perfect spot in the Park Cities:

The Easy Life: Lakewood

There is an unmistakable vibe to Lakewood: Foodies, hipsters, yuppies, artists, grandparents and kiddos happily mix and mingle in this community known for outdoor activities and community support. Money magazine called it one of the top 10 best big-city neighborhoods in America and noted its beautiful setting on the rolling hills next to White Rock Lake. Lakewood is a community that embraces nature, with that sparkling lake and its 15 miles of trails and many tributaries serving as a giant playground to those who live and visit here. Many of the neighborhoods’ iconic homes were built in the 1920s — mixed today with architecturally sensitive charmers and the occasional cool contemporary.

Explore the easy life and find your perfect spot in Lakewood.

The Educated Life: Southlake

Just minutes from downtown Dallas, Southlake is known for its exemplary public schools and its Friday-night lights. It’s a place where the whole town comes together in the fall to cheer on the Carroll High School Dragons football team, which has won the state championship multiple times. Ranked among the best neighborhoods for families with children by The Dallas Morning News, here you can hike, bike or fish at one of nearly 20 local parks — or you can take the kids to nearby Milwaukee Joe’s Gourmet Ice Cream in the Southlake Town Square for a cone. From year-round golf to sophisticated shopping, Southlake is also a popular executive-relocation town, just minutes from DFW Airport and with easy access to all things Dallas. There is a home here for everyone, especially if you like new construction and custom-built traditional homes.

Explore the educated life and find your perfect spot in Southlake.
