The Neighborhood: University Park

Originally University Park was just a gathering of homes surrounding a rural educational institution called Southern Methodist University, which was founded situated north of Dallas in 1915. In fact, the university supplied the homes with utility services. But by 1924 that came to a stop when the population outgrew the capabilities of the school and incorporated. Eventually, the cluster of houses would become one of the country's most affluent communities and gain international recognition as the future home of a presidential library.

Perhaps that is why University Park has always placed an extraordinarily high priority on education. Indeed, there are residents who have gone from kindergarten through doctorate and law school without ever leaving University Park. The town of more than 22,000 can boast that it has even beaten its neighbor Highland Park in national rankings as one of the country's finest public school systems.

However, University Park is far more than a township solely revolving around educational institutions. Within its 3.8 square miles, and due to its proximity to Dallas, University Park offers all the advantages of a major city, while maintaining a small-town charm. Its parks, with their beautifully maintained lakes, provide recreational facilities for everything from baseball and soccer to tennis, and even dog runs. To complement the lifestyle of the town's residents, Snider Plaza with its one-of-a-kind petite boutiques and restaurants was developed cattycorner from SMU in 1927.

In addition to these educational and business services, University Park, though limited in space, boasts seven religious institutions including Highland Park United Methodist Church and Highland Park Presbyterian Church, homes of the largest Methodist and Presbyterian congregations in the nation.

University Park has indeed come a long way from its origins as a bedroom community for SMU. Today the residences of University Park range from charming renovated cottages built in the early 20th century to the magnificent Volk Estate mansions with their expansive acreage and their prestigious owners.
