Lake Highlands

It’s all about family in Lake Highlands. Maintained as a huge farm until 1940, the community is large, comprised of more than 40 neighborhoods, but flush with green space, parks, and a creek trail that leads to White Rock Lake. Officially established in 1946, the area was heavily developed throughout the ’60s. There are many value homes to be found here.
