Outdoor Basketball Courts and Skatepark Closed

Due to social distancing guidelines, the Highland Park & Recreation Board has decided to close all outdoor basketball courts and the skate park located at Sheppard Park until further notice. We will post updates as information becomes available. Thank you for understanding and complying!

Refuse and Recyclables Collection

Beginning with the March 31, 2020 collection, Republic Services will limit their collection to containerized refuse and recyclables only.  This change also includes the suspension of the collection of one large item per week.

Any extra trash, including BAGGED GARBAGE and YARD WASTE, which cannot be placed in the blue trash cart, MUST be placed in a suitable trash container that can be mechanically grabbed and emptied into the truck, without exposure to the driver.  Any typical trash container, plastic or metal, would be suitable.

Large items (furniture, appliances, mattresses, etc.) should NOT be left at the curb.  Those items may be taken to the public works facility by the homeowner, without charge.

Highland Parks Closed

According to Governor Holcomb’s Executive Order 20-08, directive for Hoosiers to stay at home, all public access playgrounds may increase the spread of COVID-19 and therefore shall be closed.  Effective immediately, all Highland playgrounds are closed.  On March 26, our crew will be placing caution tape to signify their closure.  This will be in effect through April 6, 2020 unless extended by the Governor. Thank you for understanding and complying.

Master Plan Survey

The Highland Parks & Recreation Department is updating its Five Year Master Plan and would appreciate your input. Please take the survey online.  If you are unable to do so, please fill out the paper survey in the Forms section.  Thank you.

Late entry - Brynn, age 10

They are all very nice, it's hard to pick one.

great job everyone!!

Good morning Highland!

With the nice weather that is expected for today, we want to remind you of a few things to help keep everyone safe:

Our parks are open, however, all the facilities are closed up.

The playground equipment is taped off and is not permitted to be used.

The basketball courts are closed off and not permitted to be used.

If using the parks, please use only the open areas and please practice social distancing.

We know that everyone wants to get outside for some fresh air and some exercise and that is great to hear.

We all must do our part to keep each other safe and to help “flatten the curve.” Enjoy the beautiful weather, but do so safely and help yourself and help each other to stay healthy.
