Recreation and Programs

Southern Highlands offers an ideal setting for families and people of all ages with acres of parks and trails that include splash pads, tennis courts, play structures, basketball courts, and more.

  The Southern Highlands Boys & Girls Club provides a place for kids in the community to learn and play both during the school year and all summer long. The early morning and after school programs are a high point of the beautiful, state of the art facility built in 2011.

With almost 200,000 square feet of commercial property, Southern Highlands is also home to an array of excellent restaurants, services, and shops. One can find a local fire station, veterinary clinic, fully licensed pre-school, private school, gas station, a grocery store, banks, and multiple eateries within our boundaries. Whether it’s a drive through coffee house, a bit of boutique clothing therapy, or a sit down Italian dinner, opportunities are within reach. We pride ourselves on a place that offers the best of all worlds, right in your own backyard.


Southern Highlands is home to 6 beautiful and spacious parks that boast a variety of fabulous features. Some of the amenities include covered play structures, gazebos, water features, and walking paths. We also have 2 parks specifically designed for the furry members of your family.

We believe that leisure activities are an important part of life here at Southern Highlands. The Community hosts multiple events throughout the year that provide an opportunity to get out, have fun,and socialize with your neighbors. Annual events such as The Memorial Day Celebration and fireworks display, Summer Movies in the Park, The Southern Highlands Fall Festival and 5K Run, and the Holiday Tree Lighting are highlights of each year. New events are always popping up as well. Please feel free to browse our Photo Gallery. In 2012, we started the Community wide garage sale and Jazz Night. We regularly partner with the Southern Highlands Charitable Foundation at our events to raise money for those in need while enjoying time together as a community. Make sure to check this page for information on events throughout the year so you can join the fun!
