About this Neighborhood

The Highlands offers accessibility and the comforts of the city without any of the chaos. The neighborhood is situated above the city (hence the name), offering great views of downtown and is focused on both its residents and neighborhood culture, alike.

If you’re looking for a bit of a break from the city streets, Highland Park is the perfect place to take a run or a walk with your favorite four-legged friend. The park also provides a playground, sport courts, and even a public library.

Located right next to the Lower Highlands, the two neighborhoods combine to create an eclectic and diverse atmosphere for all of their residents. The Highlands are perfect for anyone seeking old-school charm in one of the trendiest and most up-and-coming parts of town.
