Highland Park Reviews

All Categories
I really like Highland Park. I have been living in this area for 16 years and the community is great! Everything is in walking, driving and or biking distance. The park is beautiful and the businesses in the community are excellent. There is so much to do and see. The Pittsburgh Zoo is not too far from the area as well. Make sure to visit our Highland Park Jazz concert series located next to the reservoir every Sunday in the month of August.
Review Highland Park
Highland Park is a neighborhood in the north east of Pittsburgh. It is residential and quiet with a quaint business district of several wonderful restaurants and coffee shops. It is close to East Liberty, a bustling and "hot" neighborhood. Highland Park is both economically and racially diverse. It is same and family friendly with lots of opportunity for community involvement. In the north corner of Highland Park is a beautiful public park by the same name. The park has lush gardens, well-equipped playgrounds, a public pool, tennis courts, and a dog park.
I love that Highland Park is a quiet, diverse, green, and residential area of Pittsburgh. It is accessible on many bus lines and parking is free and easy to find as well. The park itself is lovely and has great areas for exploring. On the other hand, the main business district of the area, Bryant Street, appears to be struggling. There are only a small handful of restaurants (albeit excellent ones), and one of the most notable recently closed its doors. I'd like to see a more lively restaurant scene as well as some recreational options such as a yoga studio.
