University Park public schools rank first among 2019 Dallas suburbs with best public schools and its high school, Highland Park High School, ranks first among the 2019 best open enrollment high schools in the DFW metroplex and its tax rate is in the bottom quartile of property tax rates in the Dallas area.

University Park is located in central Dallas County, approximately 8 miles north of downtown Dallas and 38 miles east of downtown Fort Worth. As the DFW metroplex continues to grow and becomes more densely populated, University Park's proximity to downtown Dallas, both Love Field and DFW International airports, and the north Dallas business center is likely to make University Park residential real estate even more desirable than it is now for people who need to commute frequently to and from these areas.
