I have lived in Highland Creek since 2003. Ever since my family found our home in this neighborhood, I have created a new memory almost every day. Whether it was swimming in the Sports Club pool, playing on the neighborhood playgrounds, going on family walks, trick-or-treating with neighbors, watching a movie in the park, or even just relaxing at home, I can't imagine living anywhere else.

I'm a current resident of Highland Creek and I've been living here for almost 16 years now and honestly the community is really great. Even though I'm not very active in the community its still nice to see things the neighborhood holds for the residents. I have yet to have any problems with the neighborhood.
Great neighborhood! There are tons of friendly people and things to do. There are 3 pools and many different parks that one can go to. There are also walking trails throughout the neighborhood. I love living here!
