University Park is home to Southern Methodist University and retains the quaint feel of a university town. Situated five miles north of downtown Dallas, University Park boasts more than 23,500 residents with access to an abundance of parks, churches, shopping, and dining. Tree-lined neighborhoods, grand greenery and the flow of Turtle Creek enhance the charmed feel.
University Park is known with its neighboring town, Highland Park, collectively as the Park Cities. Together, the Park Cities make up the Highland Park Independent School District, which just celebrated its Centennial in 2014. HPISD is comprised of seven campuses: four elementary schools, one intermediate school, one middle school and one high school. Highland Park High School students consistently score above the national and state average on the ACT and SAT, and Newsweek consistently ranks the school as one of the top high schools in the nation.
University Park boasts one of the highest educated populations in the nation with over 80% of residents over 25 possessing a baccalaureate degree or higher. This commitment to education makes University Park a sought-after address for young families who want the best for their children and appreciate the benefits of a neighborhood school. The City has its own municipal government (https://www.uptexas.org/) and boasts a popular family pool complex, impressive public library, tennis courts, sports fields and beautiful parks.
