Among the industrial centers and cultural hubs of northern New Jersey rests the borough of Highland Park, a small community nestled between Piscataway and New Brunswick. Homes for rent in Highland Park are notable for the borough's ideal location as well as for its particular brand of suburban living. Staten Island sits about 10 miles to the east, while Manhattan, Hoboken, Newark and Elizabeth, New Jersey fall into single file along Interstate 95 to the north.
Among the popular areas in Piscataway, Highland Park now has a population of nearly 14,000 individuals, some of whom reside in the borough's accessible rentals. These houses for rent help many newcomers support their budding lifestyle in Highland Park's tranquil neighborhoods.
During Highland Park's century-long history, which has seen steady and continued growth, the community has repeatedly expanded its recreational and practical resources to support its residents. The borough's latest project, an ongoing development, is a parks plan designed by the local Environmental Commission. A state-of-the-art environmental center has already opened near the Albany Street Bridge, and the plan further calls for a walking trail along the Raritan River that will link Johnson Park, Donaldson Park and the meadows on the border with Edison, New Jersey. Rentals in Highland Park put new residents in position to enjoy these scenic areas of the borough and the community's continued developments.
Homes for rent are also available surrounding the Livingston Manor Historic District, which is listed on the New Jersey Register of Historic Places and recalls the area's early days at the turn of the 20th century.
To support its community of families, young professionals and older adults, Highland Park offers a variety of recreational services that extend to both youth and adult sports leagues, tennis tournaments and holiday festivals.
