West Highland Park

Just south of Mockingbird Lane, a sliver of the town of Highland Park sits on the west side of the Dallas North Tollway in a neighborhood that stretches west into the city of Dallas.

Westside Drive runs predominantly north-south through West Highland Park, separating the Dallas homes on the west from their Park Cities neighbors. With a TollTag, it is 5 miles south to downtown Dallas or 10 miles north to LBJ Freeway, and Inwood Road to the west is the perfect thoroughfare to the Medical District.

Find original two-story colonials, quaint one-story cottages, mid-century ranches, and gorgeous new transitional homes. In 2012, Centre Living Homes built seven modern farmhouses at Emirl Court. Travel further south on Westside to find condominiums, townhomes, and apartments. Westside Drive culminates at Lemmon Avenue, home to prestigious auto dealerships.


In the middle of the neighborhood, Central Commons honors the legacy of Central Christian Church. It remains the place for community activities, a variety of worshipping communities, and Central Dog Park – a peaceful place for neighbors to spend time with their pets. The dog park has seating, a bathing station, and drinking bowls and is open from 7 a.m. until dusk daily. Visit centralcommons.org.


The community typically gathers to hold an annual tree lighting and fundraiser at the Central Dog Park with Santa Paws, tamales, snacks, and dog treats in December.
