About Us

Forest Hills Association

In April 1924, Leon Fechenbach, dedicated the plat of the Forest Hills Addition, six miles from the city limits of Dallas. The land was bounded by Garland Road (old Bankhead Highway); Lakeland Drive (old John West Road); the Santa Fe Railroad tracks; Highland Road (then called Wilshire Blvd.); and one block of San Rafael Drive. Forest Hills was annexed into Dallas in May 1945.

An advertisement in the November 30, 1924 Dallas Morning News shows an English Tudor house with the headline, "Your home in a forest!" Describing the area: " Your home build among massive oak, elm, and pecan trees---built within a stone's throw of beautifical White Rock Lake---is possible in only one addition---FOREST HILLS---and with the city's announcement of White Rock Lake being turned into a pleasure lake upon the completion of the Garza project, assures you all the advantages at your front door."

At that time, Forest Hills was truly in the country, one of the few areas around the Lake that was wooded. Being about five miles from downtown Dallas, today residents feel when they leave their jobs, they are going to their home in the country. Forest Hills has several nice greenbelts and many large graceful old trees where residents enjoy many different species of birds, and other wildlife.

The Forest Hills Association has planted and landscaped much of the boulevards. FHA will continue to beautify Forest Hills with the help of all residents.

Also, the Dallas Arboretum and Botanical Gardens are across Garland Road from Forest Hills. Many residents are members of the Dallas Arboretum and enjoy the garden throughout the year.

Many residents enjoy walking, jogging, and biking in Forest Hills. If you want a change of scenery, it is a short walk to White Rock Lake for a stroll or a jog, or to the Arboretum to look at the beautiful grounds.

We have the greatest neighborhood in Dallas!
