Central Features in This Neighborhood

Two major features are anchors of this community: a spacious park and a neighborhood school. But in addition to these central features, Highlands is right by Interlachen Country Club and Garden Park, and just minutes from other things to do. 

Highlands Park and Lake

At the heart of the neighborhood is this spacious, 44-acre park that offers residents a great place to relax and have fun. The park features a soccer field and tennis courts, full-sized hockey rink and warming house for winter fun, and benches and picnic tables for small gatherings with your friends and neighbors. 

Make sure to experience the park's natural beauty and snap a few pictures. There are bright flowers throughout the park, along with a sparkling lake that glints in the afternoon sun. 

Highlands Elementary School

This school is one of six elementary schools within the Edina Public Schools district, and serves almost 600 students in Kindergarten through 5th grade.

The school district also offers two 6th-9th grade schools (South View Middle School and Valley View Middle School) and a 10th-12th grade high school (Edina High School), and its excellent schools are a major draw for residents to this neighborhood.
