This new neighborhood park will primarily serve local neighborhood needs. As a part of this process, THPRD worked with neighbors and the broader parks community to ensure that the Master Plan for the park considered public needs and concerns. While the Master Plan was approved in 2015, THPRD is currently looking toward the design and addition of the play area and lawn.
Consider spending some time with your family prior to the meeting to discuss what you would like to see at the new play area. We will also offer activities for children attending the meeting.
For community members unable to attend the neighborhood meeting, an online survey is available for the Highlands play area in English and Spanish through December 14th to provide their choices for play equipment.
The site is an irregular shaped lot that slopes from the north and east borders downward to the southwest The southwest edge of the park lines the curve of NW 170th Ave. The site currently has no trees and is mostly made up of open field. The property was acquired by THRPD in 2013.
