Highland Park is an at-grade light rail station in the Los Angeles County Metro Rail system. It is located near the intersection of North Avenue 57 at Marmion Way (one block north of North Figueroa Street) in the Highland Park neighborhood of Northeast Los Angeles, California. The station is served by the Gold Line.[1]

The station features an architectural sculpture, called 'Stone Tree Inverted Post (Bound Water Light),' created by artist Jud Fine.[2]

During the construction and planning stages, Highland Park station was originally planned to be named Avenue 57 station, named for nearby Avenue 57. It was one of three stations to be renamed shortly before the line's opening.

The original Highland Park station and freight depot, for the Atchison, Topeka and Santa Fe railroad, was demolished in 1965.[3]
