Forbes once named Lake Highlands one of the top three best neighborhoods to buy a home – and it’s no wonder. Tree-lined, rolling streets give this mostly residential area a homey feeling, and many residents consider Lake Highlands to be a small town within a big city.
Residents have easy access to Garland to the east, Richardson to the north and North Dallas to the west. Most of Lake Highlands is located within the popular Richardson Independent School District, while a small area located mainly south of Northwest Hwy is served by Dallas Independent School District. Homes in Lake Highlands consist mostly of single-family homes, and is a natural choice for active families because of its proximity to White Rock Lake.
