AROUND THE BLOCK
LAKE HIGHLANDS: This sprawling, close-in suburb quite literally rises above the city.
Taking up significant square mileage in northeast Dallas, Lake Highlands is broader and farther out than most Dallas neighborhoods (and largely perched on higher elevation) but still feels like a cohesive community not far from the city’s excitements. Richardson ISD schools, which serve most of the community, are a big selling point for new buyers as is the multitude of parks.
WHAT TO EXPECT: Established subdivisions with big backyards punctuated by shopping strips and office developments.
The feeling throughout Lake Highlands is that you’ve stumbled into a humble hometown that happens to be in a big city. The Hill, a revamped shopping center, is bringing exciting new tenants to the area.
THE LIFESTYLE: Family-focused with an appreciation for the finer things in life.
Parkies, as the locals are called, prize their town’s serenity, safety, and award-winning public schools. Families fill their calendars with lacrosse practices, tennis matches, charity lunches, and rounds of golf at the Dallas Country Club.
UNEXPECTED APPEAL: The many trails and parks along White Rock Creek.
Sizable White Rock Lake, just south of the community, is a beautiful playground for paddleboarders, sailing enthusiasts, and kayakers. So too does the 7.6-mile White Rock Creek trail and its surrounding greenbelt attract walkers, joggers, and bicyclists who make use of a succession of linked parks, including popular Flag Pole Hill.
THE MARKET: Dozens of subdivisions create a chain of communities.

With Dallas’s vibrant urban core to the south and rapidly growing suburbs like Plano and Frisco to the north, Lake Highlanders get to enjoy the best of both worlds. Interstate 635, also known as the LBJ Freeway, runs right through the area and is a convenient thoroughfare to many parts of the Metroplex; commuters can also take the DART light rail into downtown.
