“Some people cite being close to nature but near everything... But Cotton Hill Park in the Highlands is the real deal. You won’t even believe - EVER - that you are in the middle of such a vibrant, successful community.”

— Nancy Thomas, Resident of The Highlands Neighborhood


Multiple parks. The Cross-Kirkland Corridor. Views. All within moments to Downtown Kirkland? No, this is not a false description, this is The Highlands. Located just North of Downtown and near almost everything, The Highlands has long been a sought after place to call home in the Kirkland community. Meandering lanes jutting off the main arterials evoke a sense of discovery and curiosity, while always maintaining a sense of comfortability and connection. Unique and truly one-of-a-kind, you'll never get bored exploring the distinct neighborhoods of The Highlands.

“Our kids’ favorite park in town is definitely Forbes Hill Park. My daughter Sofia especially loves the “music maker” there.”

— Bridgette Murphy, Resident of The Highlands
