Lake Highlands Reviews
Rating 4.25 out of 5 16 reviews
Native Texan, mostly in North Dallas. Moved to Lake Highlands (Merriman Park) six years ago and have NEVER felt safe. I can't believe this is the same city. This area is a crime-infested wasteland in my opinion. Multiple murders in the apartments nearby, hollow point 40-caliber bullet fired through my garage from a vehicle driving by, early morning joggers robbed at gunpoint for their cell phone, constant sirens and police helicopters, gunshots heard regularly, and on and on. The single-family neighborhoods in the area are nice and the schools (Richardson ISD) are good; however, the tens of thousands of dilapidated apartments are a blight on this community... not because they are low income, but because their owners (usually out of state "private equity" looking to slap some paint on them and sell 2 years later for a hefty profit) do nothing to ensure the safety of their residents or maintain their properties. Further, the Dallas police department is completely ineffective.
I love lake highlands!! It is very family-centered, there are lots of young families and lots of children. Everyone is so friendly!!
Just moved to the area, so far so good. Very quiet, everyone is friendly and respectful of the neighbor. An ideal place to raise a family!
Really good area. Pretty calm most of the time with nice, wonderful people. You can go for walks and runs and not expect any bad surprises. Safety is great.
Whether you're looking for a great burger or a satisfying coffee, there's always something in Lake Highlands. The high school provides a wonderful education as well as entertaining sporting events, and Lake Highlands feels like a true family neighborhood.
The Lake Highlands community is a virtually positive and evolving one. They just need to improve the pricing of the individual households to make living here better.
My neighborhood gave me a great experience for the 17 years I've been alive. I grew up here, and through it, I've have learned so much and gained so many experiences.
It's a good neighborhood! I don't really like it because I have never lived anywhere else in my life so I am sick of it. However, there are worse places to live and I am lucky to live here.
Dallas' hidden gem. Great well established neighborhood within Dallas. A lot of young families moving into the area. Active neighborhoods. Many new commercial developments and great restaurants. Great location for work, school, shopping, and dinning. Houses were built in the late 70's. So, you have bigger and more functional floor plans than Lakewood or M Streets.
One of the best areas to live. Short drive to downtown. Urban lake provides ample opportunity to be out doors for cycling, running, fishing, sailing.
Great central location and Richardson schools. New Lake Highlands Town Center and minutes to White Rock Lake.
Lake Highlands is on the north side of White Rock Lake in Dallas, Texas. It's a nice neighborhood with a chill vibe. One gets the feeling that he or she is not even inside the city with the lake and trails, but still conveniently close to everything Dallas has to offer as a metropolitan area.
No area is great however this area is okay. Having curfew in our complex is better because no young people are hanging out.
