Surround yourself with abundant lilac shrubs that bloom in the summer, Japanese maples, magnolias, and rhododendrons. Highland Park is not only go beautiful in spring and summer; the place is charming all year round with the lovely colors of fall which transforms into a winter playground for children in their sleds. Park features baseball/softball field, an athletic field, a playground, a conservatory, a garden, and a war memorial.
Things to Do
- Visit during the summer in time for the ten-day Lilac Festival featuring free concerts, shows, movies, and exhibits. The park tends to get crowded at this time with festival-goers but it still is a great experience.
- In the winter, park-goers usually drop by the Lamberton Conservatory to get away from the dull season. Tropical flowers, cacti, and a turtle pond will certainly cheer you up from your winter blues.
- Take the family here anytime of the year to reconnect with nature, go for a walk or jog, and bring food for a picnic. Highland Park is a great place to relax and spend quality time with your loved ones. The park is also a popular spot for wedding photos and receptions so you may want to bring your camera along with you for your own photoshoot.
