Lake Highlands

About Lake Highlands

Just between Lakewood and White Rock Creek is one of Dallas's most interesting and popular neighborhoods – Lake Highlands. With its hills covered with trees and immediate access to such shopping and business centers at NorthPark, Preston Center and the planned Lake Highlands Town Center, this area of Dallas provides both convenience and charm.

But what would you expect, with White Rock Lake on its eastern border? Since its renovation, White Rock has become a focal point for Lake Highland activities. Whether it's an early morning job, taking a sailboat for an afternoon tour of the lake, watching your pet play with others at the leash-free dog park at Mockingbird Point, taking in a concert at the Dallas Arboretum or horseback riding around the lake's perimeter, there is always something to do at this 1,015-acre city lake.

In addition to the Dallas Arboretum, with its 66 acres and incredible gardens fronting White Rock, some of Dallas' finest and best-known estates, including the late H.L. Hunt's "Mount Vernon" also enjoy unforgettable views year-round.

But Lake Highlands is not limited to mega-estates designed by such architects as Denman Scott, Burton Shutt and John Staub. Along its tree-lined winding roads in Forest Hills, Little Forest Hills and West Lawther Drive, you'll find residences of every design ranging from quaint Charles Dilbeck cottages to dramatic Texas modern masterpieces by Frank Welch.
