The neighbourhood is bounded on the north by 111 Avenue, on the south by 107 Avenue, on the east by 149 Street, and on the west by 156 Street.

Most of the residential construction in the neighbourhood occurred between the end of World War II and 1970. It was during this period that about 85% of the residences were built. According to the 2001 Federal Census, approximately four out of five residences in the neighbourhood are owner occupied with only one out of five being rented. The residences in the neighbourhood are almost exclusively single-family dwellings, which make up approximately 96% of the residences.[8]

There is a single school in the neighbourhood, High Park Elementary School.

The community is represented by the High Park Community League, established in 1959, which maintains a community hall and outdoor rink located at 154 Street and 110 Avenue.[9][10]
