Fully seventy-two percent of the city’s residents who are beyond college age have at least a college degree or higher. Ninety-seven percent of its high school graduates go on to college.

Located north of Dallas, it plays host to the George W. Bush Presidential Center. It is also home to the Southern Methodist University, from which the whole community grew from. University Park is well-named. Not only is it a center of education, it’s also admired for its parks and churches, as well as homes that are well-made and beautiful.
There is a wide range of business opportunities here, as well as places for recreational or leisure activities, shopping and cultural offerings. You can reserve a park for a night if, for instance, you need a venue for a one-night concert.
The local government has a personalized approach to service, and with a hometown policing approach, the entire city helps in keeping the crime rates the lowest in the Dallas-Fort Worth metroplex. This, in turn, has helped the city become the 2nd wealthiest in America in terms of family income.

The city is very protective of citizens’ rights. This is illustrated in the famous December 2011 lawsuit filed against the city board by Legacy Hillcrest Investments, owner of the Chase Building in Snyder Plaza. The board voted to block Legacy’s efforts to redevelop the property after residents appealed for the board’s help. Legacy had by then filed three rezoning requests, all of which were denied. It had been trying to redevelop its property for a decade.
Lower-income residents of the city have their legal needs served by legal organizations and individual attorneys or firms here. Southern Methodist University School of Law prominently provides a low-income taxpayer clinic.
