This neighborhood was developed in the 1920s, in the “English Common” tradition of homes built around private parkways with towering trees. This innovative plan means that Greenway Parks is very pedestrian-friendly with kids playing in the parkways, people jogging and bicycling, walking dogs and strolling along the streets. And it’s just minutes to Highland Park Village’s shopping, dining and movies. The Greenway Parks Conservation District has been very successful in preserving the neighborhood’s identity.
Idyllic Greenbelts link the neighborhood and the neighbors.
