A premier residential community located along the shores of Lake Ray Hubbard in Rockwall and Kaufman Counties. Heath is a community of more than 7,400 residents. The City of Heath is committed to preserving a special way of life where rolling hills and the sparkling lake provide a serene backdrop for beautiful neighborhoods and distinctive homes. While this pastoral setting offers a sense of being removed from the bustle of city life, residents enjoy spectacular views of the Dallas skyline and easy access to the business, cultural and entertainment amenities of the Metroplex. Heath’s growing trail system and two municipal parks, including one along the lake, contribute to an enjoyable lifestyle. First-class recreational opportunities are also offered by Rush Creek Yacht Club, home to Olympic Gold Medalist sailors, and the award winning Buffalo Creek Golf and Country Club. Exemplary schools include the state-of-the-art Rockwall-Heath High School. The City welcomes the advent of low-impact businesses to provide goods, services and entertainment to its growing population.
