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.

A family friendly neighborhood filled with beautiful architecture, diverse and unique families of all backgrounds and lifestyles, and an overall healthy environment to raise children in. What once was known as the neighborhood next to the zoo, is now the "hotspot" for couples wishing to bring up a family in a safe and loving environment.
When moving to Pittsburgh we wanted to find a neighborhood that was conveniently located, on a bus line that allows us to get to our jobs in Oakland and Downtown, had good restaurants and things to do within walking distance, and a diverse neighborhood. Highland Park fits all of those descriptions. We love the Bryant Street area (it gets better every day), the park (especially the pool) is wonderful, and we can easily get around Pittsburgh. Our neighbors are friendly, we feel like we can safely walk our dog at night, and we like being part of this community.
