University Park

University Park is an affluent residential area named for its main feature, Southern Methodist University. Population around 25,000. Campus venues include McFarlin Auditorium, a stately theater for concerts and high-profile lectures, and the Meadows Museum, with Spanish art from the 15th century onward. Sandwich shops, laid-back cafes and fashion boutiques surround Snider Plaza, while nearby Caruth Park has a fishing pond and play areas.
 

Even though it’s situated in the heart of Dallas, this enclave is actually composed of two independent entities: the Town of Highland Park and the City of University Park. Each maintains its own tax structures, police departments, school districts, and municipal operations.  Land owners in the early 1900s adopted the Highland Park name not only because the land’s high location that overlooked Downtown Dallas, but because 20 percent of the development’s land was originally set aside for parks.

The well-to-do and influential live here, including Jerry Jones (Dallas Cowboys’ owner). In fact, some of the highest per-capita incomes in all of Texas reside within these ZIP codes. Home prices easily reach the millions. Boutique shopping is luxe, providing high levels of personal service at places like Highland Park Village, the oldest shopping center in the United States. While the houses are grand, the streets are lined with majestic oak trees. Lush green spaces are meticulously manicured. The presence of the private Southern Methodist University campus lends a quaint ivy-league air to these small but wealthy towns. At Christmas, horse-drawn carriages carry crowds to view the awe-inspiring light shows of the decorated mansions.

The Park Cities are also home to the Dallas Country Club, George W. Bush Presidential Library and Museum, and Snider Plaza.

The town shares the school district with its neighbor Highland Park.  The Highland Park Independent School District is considered one of best in Texas.
