Since I have commuted back and forth over a six month period, I have notice that the residents of Highland Park is friendly. I notice that the community(which is an older population)has lived there for quite a long time, therefore the residents refuse to move. I would rate Highland Park 3 stars

People who live here are friendly, helpful and approachable. The neighborhood is pedestrian and bike friendly. There is police and fire offices within 2 minutes so I always feel safe here. Yards are well maintained. Schools are nearby and commuting to anywhere is pretty easy.
We have a neighborhood blog so I always feel in the know about crime watch and incident issues around here. Great block watch and neighborhood watch programs. Police offer monthly meetings as well.
