Park Cities in Texas feature two communities in Dallas County, Texas – the Town of Highland Park and the City of University Park. Highland Park and University Park are surrounded by the city of Dallas, and are separate, incorporated cities with their own government systems, police force and fire departments.
The Park Cities are bounded on the east by Central Expressway (US-75) and on the west by the Dallas North Tollway. Preston Road runs north and south down the middle of the two communities. Downtown Dallas is an easy 5-10 minute ride and with the road systems in place, it’s just as easy to go west to Las Colinas and the airport or north to Plano.
