You can also find some short walking paths.

The Playground at Highland Park
Playground has a woodchip surface with a large play structure and a merry-go-round.

The Splashpad at Highland Park
The sprawling concrete splash pad has a variety of spraying options for kids to explore.

Each water feature comes directly out of the ground. There aren't any dump buckets at Highland Park's splash pad.

But kids will love the water that bends through the air, creating arches for kids to run under and through. There are also sprayers at different intensities and angles.

Benches alongside the cement are perfect for parents to watch their kids playing or opt to spread out a blanket on the grass. The playground is close by for kids to run back and forth.

The Disc Golf Course at Highland Park
This disc golf course is hard to navigate (no map/signage). It's a good option if you want to go out and shoot around, but if you're looking for a serious game, this place is not it.
Facilities at Highland Park
A restroom is available.
