High Point is designed to encourage a sense of community. Throughout the neighborhood small and large parks and landmarks serve as community gathering points where neighbors can meet and relax. Larger parks and ball fields encourage group activities. Playgrounds with modern play structures are ideal places for children to engage in active play while their adults socialize and cheer them on.

The wide sidewalks along tree-lined streets encourage walking. Walk from sidewalks to trails with connections to the wider West Seattle network of trails. This is ideal when you’re in the mood to explore either the city side along the sidewalks or the "wild side" along the Longfellow Creek Legacy Trail, where you can experience some urban wilderness.

Front porch architecture creates "eyes on the street" and enhances a friendly setting where it's easier to meet neighbors and make friends. Nearby services like the library, health center and stores along 35th SW are walkable, reducing the need for car trips. Excellent transit service connects High Point to West Seattle, downtown and surrounding communities.
