Highland Park is a world-class arboretum and National Register-listed landscape designed by Frederick Law Olmsted.

Lamberton Conservatory

The Conservatory showcases living collections of plants found in tropical rain forests and desert environments. A seasonal display area changes several times a year so there is always something beautiful to see.

The memorial was dedicated on September 8, 1996. It is a place of solemn reflection for those who came back, and for the family members and friends of those who didn't. The memorial includes 280 bollards, all of them representing the men who were killed in action or designated missing in action, as of 1996.


Frederick Douglass Statue

The statue resides near the Highland Bowl and is located to less than 300 yards from the site of the esteemed abolitionist's and stateman's former South Avenue home. The statue is the first public monument dedicated to an African-American in the United States.
