When Jasper Place amalgamated with the city of Edmonton in 1964, High Park joined the city. With the bulk of the residential construction being completed by 1970, this is an established neighbourhood with generations of families and a tight-knit community feeling. The majority of the homes in this community are single-family homes.
High Park is bordered by 111 Avenue, 107 Avenue, 149 Street and 156 Street. The features of this neighbourhood include two parks: High Park and Ken Newman as well as a very well established community league. The High Park Community League is a focal point for many people in the neighbourhood with a host of activities and events taking place year round.
At the center of this friendly neighbourhood are the High Park Elementary School (operated by the Edmonton Public School System) and the Community Hall. Both of these establishments offer a range of activities and social options for all ages.
A small community, High Park does have the recently refurbished Westmount Centre that offers many shopping and dining options. This community is close to the neighbourhoods of: Britannia, Youngstown, Canora, Grovenor, Mayfield and McQueen. In addition the industrial divisions of High Park Industrial, Huff Bremner Estate Industrial and Sheffield Industrial are nearby and provide many employment opportunities.
