A Luxurious & Friendly Community

The upscale community of University Park, located just 5 miles north of downtown Dallas, is really more of a “mini city”, along with its southerly neighbor, Highland Park. Together, these two communities comprise the Park Cities of northern Dallas, offering some of the top-rated schools in Texas, as well as beautiful and luxurious homes, lush parks and a wealth of recreational amenities, and thriving shopping and business districts. Over 72% of the residents in University Park hold a college degree or higher, making it one of the most educated cities in the United States.

Neighborhood & Community

A Neighborhood Lush with Amenities

You don’t have to leave home to meet all your shopping, dining, and recreation needs; it’s all here within the neighborhood. The Holmes Aquatic Center is a main recreational attraction, offering two pools with a water slide and aerated fountain, a sprayground, swim lessons, parties, and even lifeguarding classes. The neighborhood also boasts acres of beautiful parkland, a plethora of recreational programs, and two upscale shopping centers.

A Connected Community

Community, or family? In University Park, they might just be one and in the same; a wealth of community events and celebrations throughout the year bring residents and friends together time and again. Some top celebrations include the Goar Park Eggstravaganza, Park Cities July 4th Parade and Picnic, and the Snider Plaza Holiday Tree Lighting. Some fun events include the Children’s Fishing Derby, Dive-In Movies at Holmes Aquatic Center, Doggie Splash Day, and Arbor Day.
