This new park features an expanded lake, 140 newly planted trees, and a one-third mile asphalt loop walking trail open to the public. Additional amenities include park benches, picnic tables and trash and recycling bins.
Highland Lake Park is open daily from dawn till dusk. The grand opening ceremony includes a special fish release into the lake, made possible by a donation from the Florida Wildlife and Conservation Commission.
NOTE: Because of construction of the new Highland Recreation Complex, access to the park is temporarily located off of Wood Street, or from Lake Avenue along the east side of the senior baseball field at the Highland Recreation Complex.
