It's quiet for the most part! People are friendly and over half are animal lovers- I love that part! Every now and then someone will get out of order and disturb the peace but not often. Overall, I'm happy to have found the Highland Park neighborhood!

Just moved to the area and am loving it so far! Lots of things to do nearby and great walking trails for me and my puppy. Its very beautiful and feels very safe, and I love being walking distance to so many cool local stores/restaurants !
I love Highland Park's diversity, beautiful landscapes and historical connection. I'd love to see a beautification initiative started to address the dog poo issues!
