Surrounded on three of four sides by the city of Dallas
and on the final side by its fellow park city - University Park - Highland Park offers apartment residents plenty in the way of entertainment and culture.
Highland Park has been renowned as a top shopping destination for a long time, particularly since it was the site of the first self-contained shopping center of its type in the United States. Highland Park Village opened in 1931 and was unique for its time - featuring a unified architectural style with storefronts all facing a central parking lot, and all managed by a single ownership. Though these types of shopping centers are found throughout the country today, apartment residents in Highland Park have been enjoying the retail options at their village for decades and continue to do so today.
Highland Park is also the site of Texas' first country club and the second in the entire country - the Dallas Country Club. Founded in 1896, the rolling fairways and bright greens at this club encompass 117.5 acres of land featuring stunning views of Turtle Creek and the Dallas skyline. Apartment residents can not only tee off at Highland Park's most famous course, but also enjoy its state-of-the-art facilities, clubhouse, restaurants and entertainment.
One of Highland Park's most beloved traditions includes the beloved pecan tree on Armstrong Parkway at Preston Road. The gigantic tree - 75 feet wide by 75 feet tall - is over 140 years old and has been decorated each year for the holidays in what is believed to be the oldest holiday tree lighting in Dallas County.
