"Excellent Neighborhood for Young Families"

The Highland Hills neighborhood is an excellent location for couples thinking about starting a family or families with young children. In the last ten years, the neighborhood has turned over significantly, replacing older homeowners with young couples and families. It is a very safe neighborhood in an excellent school district (Richardson ISD), and the community is welcoming and easy to get involved in.

Highland Hills includes both older homes built in the 1950s and a newer subdivision that includes some newer and larger homes. Many homes have been updated or renovated by former or current owners. The neighborhood used to be a pecan orchard, so there is plenty of shade in the hot Texas summers. Children can often be seen running around front yards, and families walking pets and strollers are a regular evening occurrence.

The neighborhood is convenient to a variety of activities and retail. White Rock Lake is minutes away, where residents often go to walk/run/bike around the lake, take their dog to the dog park, or simply picnic and enjoy the scenery. The Arboretum is also nearby, a must-see in Dallas. The neighborhood has easy access to a number of grocery stores, parks and local neighborhood businesses, from bakeries to auto repair.

Part of the larger Lake Highlands neighborhood, Highland Hills has a great family vibe. From rooting on the Wildcat football team to neighborhood block parties and local fundraisers, it’s a great place for young families to raise their children and connect with their neighbors.
