University Park


Welcome to University Park

Built up around Southern Methodist University, this affluent independent suburb is sought after for its strong public school system and idyllic small-town vibe.
First developed around 1915, the year SMU was founded, University Park has grown from a small nucleus of teacher housing into a full-fledged community with multi-generational appeal. Along with adjacent sister neighborhood Highland Park, it anchors the Park Cities, Dallas’s wealthiest enclave.

What to Expect

Charming homegrown shops, lovingly maintained green spaces, and a prized residents-only pool.
Nearby Highland Park and Preston Hollow boast a bevy of designer boutiques, but UP residents cherish their own Snider Plaza, built in 1927 and home to an array of local shops. Recreational pleasures--everything from fishing ponds to jogging trails--abound in the many parks, though the most beloved is the Holmes Aquatic Center, a popular summer hangout.

The Lifestyle

Laid-back and neighborly with lots of school spirit.
The consistently high-performing Highland Park Independent School District lures many young families to the area, so you’ll likely pass a lemonade stand or two as well as families out for evening bike rides and weekend walks along the tree-lined streets. Impromptu neighborhood cookouts fill out a full calendar of official community events.

Unexpected Appeal

World-class cultural offerings--and tailgating too.
Proximity to SMU’s leafy campus means residents can easily take advantage of the storied university’s many cultural institutions, including the prestigious Meadows Museum (known for its collection of Spanish art) and the George W. Bush Presidential Library and Museum. You don’t have to be an alum to enjoy the revelry that is “boulevarding” before football games.

The Market

Sprawling estates for growing families.
Though lots tend to be a half-acre or smaller, the single-family homes here have ample square footage. Expect to see Mediterranean and Spanish Colonial stunners as well as plenty of Georgian mansions that mimic the architecture of the SMU campus.

You'll Fall in Love With

The small-town atmosphere amid big-city amenities.
Thanks to University Park’s central location and easy access to several major thoroughfares, you can get out and enjoy Dallas’s glitzy shopping centers and five-star restaurants and then come home to this cocoon of comfort and quiet.

University Park History

Its name originated because of its location adjacent to Southern Methodist University, which was attracted to the area by donations of land from Alice Armstrong and W. W. Caruth, Sr. SMU officially opened in 1915, and homes were built around the campus to house teachers and staff of the university. Water came from the university’s artesian wells, and sewage lines were connected to Dallas's lines in Oak Lawn. By 1924, with more than 380 homes in the area. The cities of Dallas and Highland Park refused to annex the University Park area because of the financial burden of laying new sewer lines and supplying garbage removal and police and fire protection. Therefore, in 1924 the city of University Park was incorporated with a population of 1,200.

Snider Plaza, a popular shopping center, opened in 1927, although it remained largely undeveloped throughout the Great Depression. Leonard Volk, a prominent Dallas merchant, had already purchased a large tract of land in 1924, south of Lovers Lane along Turtle Creek, and began developing a neighborhood that would include some of the most expensive homes in the Dallas area. It was originally called Brookside but was later known as Volk Estates. After World War II, University Park experienced a residential building boom.  

The population of University Park grew rapidly, mirroring the growth of Southern Methodist University and the nearby cities of Dallas and Highland Park. By 1945 University Park had an estimated population of 18,000 and 120 businesses.  University Park still relied on the city of Dallas for such services as water and sewage treatment, but in 1947 the Park Cities set up their own Water Control and Improvement District to take over these functions. A water-purification plant, reservoir, and pressure tank were completed in 1950. Because it was surrounded by Dallas, University Park was prevented from annexing land for growth as most communities in Dallas County did, and its area remained 3.7 square miles.

Current day: University Park, with a median annual household income and an average home price, is among the most affluent cities in the United States.  Click to read more...
