Washington hills, the San Rafael hills and the Monterey Hills. There are large sprawling parks in the area.

Today the community, home to about 66,000, remains deeply rooted in the arts, houses many art galleries and one of the oldest operating Stain Glass Studios. Highland Park has a diverse collection of historic homes including more than 50 designated as historic cultural monuments.
