WELCOME TO HIGHLAND PARK
A Neighborhood Watch is one of the most effective and least costly ways to prevent crime and reduce fear. Neighborhood Watch programs help to reduce the feeling of isolation that so many citizens feel in their communities. No more isolation, we are here to work together to prevent crime and bring neighbors closer together as a community.
We have over people in the Hightland Neighborhood Watch but we would like to have many more join us. If you live in Highland Park or have family or friends in the area, please make sure they join us.

ABOUT HIGHLAND PARK
Highland Park is a neighborhood comprising several historic districts north of downtown Richmond, Virginia. Over time, various boundaries have served to split the neighborhood into sections traditionally labeled East Highland Park, North Highland Park, and South Highland Park (Chestnut Hill/Plateau). The southern Highland Park boundaries are roughly First Avenue to the west, Fifth Avenue to the east, the Shockoe Valley to the south, and E. Brooklnd Park boulevard to the north. The Highland Park Southern Tip neighborhood is also known as the Chestnut Hill-Plateau Historic District district. The northern Highland Park boundaries are roughly defined by
Pensacola ave and the railroad tracks to the north, Fifth avenue to the east, E. Brookland Park boulevard to the south, and the Richmond-Henrico Turnpike to the west. The zip code is 23222.House in Chestnut Hill-Plateau historic districtLargely residential in character, the area is notable for having Richmond's largest remaining stock of Queen Anne style homes. Originally developed as a streetcar suburb starting in 1891, the community quickly became a magnet for the city's burgeoning southern & eastern European immigrant population, particularly Italians, Germans, and Poles.The Highland Park Plaza Historic District was added to the National Register of Historic Places in 2004.The area declined after World War II, when white flight and other economic factors encouraged wealthy and middle-class residents to depart for newer neighborhoods in the city's West End. Southern Highland Park is currently seeing a resurgence of activity thanks to its location convenient to downtown and the Virginia BioTechnology Research Park. The city's "Neighborhoods in Bloom" program, a public-private partnership focused on encouraging investment activity in targeted areas, has also contributed to this resurgence.
