I have only live in Highland Park for about 11 years and I found this area to be convenient to travel to nearby grocery stores, restaurants, and this area is convenient for public transportation. This area has access to nearby freeways for traveling faster from one location to another location.

With the number to families moving into the locality and with increase in demand for housing and accommodation surely denotes a positive sign about the area. Increased parks for recreation for kids and older adults and a peaceful environment, and the local administration maintaining the locality clean and pleasant does make an impact on the overall living experience of the area. The ease in availability of groceries, textiles and human resources in shopping centers like the Model-T plaza in a smaller community like Highland Park surely makes a positive impact.
I like that Highland Park is small and closely connected. I would like to see the school system improve, for the future of our children
