In the beginning of the 20th century, the area now known as Highland Park was farmland. A group of investors bought the town in 1909 and became the Highland Park Improvement Company. The neighborhood is now filled with Craftsman-style architecture, which was popular through the 1920s. E.O. Goldbeck was a famous panoramic photographer whose home and studio was located in Highland Park.
Residents can enjoy the warm San Antonio weather by visiting Highland Park, a green lawn space near the eastern side of the neighborhood. It's the perfect spot to go for a jog or take your dog for a walk. The James A. Bode Community Center sits in the middle of the park.
You'll find several shops, cafes, bakeries and restaurants scattered throughout Highland Park. The streets near the freeway system are especially full of dinning opportunities.
