Welcome to the “Finest and Healthiest Part of the City“!
Mr. Ellwanger and Mr. Barry were nurserymen who owned the land that consists of current-day Highland Park and our streets. This area was for many years known as The Ellwanger & Barry Neighborhood. Our name was changed to The Highland Park Neighborhood in 2007. The Highland Park neighborhood has always been known as very family friendly.
April 30th clean sweep. Please join the southeast neighborhood in making this a great area to live in! Meet your neighbors, watch some baseball and help clean up the litter and plant flowers. HPNA, South Clinton merchants association, Swillburg team,and the South Wedge neighborhood will all be working mainly on Clinton ave.
Roger Ramsay would like to have a group of volunteers 8-10 to work on the Monroe Co. on Bloom Garden at the top of Clinton Ave.
please take a moment to sign up. No need to meet at Red Wing stadium if you don’t have time or your running late. Just wander down to Clinton ave and someone with a clean sweep shirt will direct you.
Clean Sweep also at the playground at Meigs & Linden this Saturday. You don’t need to go to Frontier Field. Just meet us at the playground around 10 am. If we have enough people, we will try to move the gaga pit to a better location within the park.
