A volunteer-powered neighborhood gathering place.

The Highland Park Improvement Club (HPIC) has been the heart of our community since 1919. HPIC belongs to our neighborhood and is powered by volunteers. 

We're your gathering place and your community. Join us for our next neighborhood event. We hold free movie nights, craft fairs and we turn into your local corner bar on the first Friday of every month.
