Highland Park was settled by Alexander Negley in 1778 and annexed to the city in 1868. Tree-lined streets full of Victorian, Tudor, and Colonial homes — from modest to grand — characterize this family-oriented neighborhood. [1]

The James Scott House (National Register of Historic Places) is located in the neighborhood.

The Highland Park neighborhood is home to the 500 acre park of the same name. Edward Bigelow, the park's founder, called it "the finest breathing room in the city," and people come from all over the city to enjoy it.

The neighborhood is also home to the Pittsburgh Zoo.
