Welcome to Lake Highlands
A dependable, family-friendly neighborhood above the lake
On the rolling hills just north of White Rock Lake is the dependable and easy-going neighborhood of Lake Highlands. It’s made up of a series of well-established subdivisions, and the residential communities are mixed in with shopping centers, making it a consistent and convenient place to live.
Though it had many residential areas before, Lake Highlands saw a huge boost in development and population during the 1960s and 1970s as Dallas grew and people looked to the outskirts for quieter places. Many families relocated here, and between its amenities and school districts, it continues to be a prime community for families to put down roots.
Lake Highlands has a variety of architectural styles and home sizes throughout its subdivisions. Throughout this sprawling neighborhood, home buyers will consistently find great value and more space for their dollar. This encourages many would-be residents to come here when they’re looking to expand their families.

It’s a place for active families who love the outdoors, with plenty of parks and trails along White Rock Creek. Friendly neighbors and an easy-going pace of life make this a pleasant place to call home.
