About Washington Heights
Vibrant. Diverse. Growing.
Washington Heights or “The Heights” is a thriving, diverse neighborhood just North of Story Hill and west of Highway 41 and Washington Park. The Heights is a vibrant family-orientated community, supporting a growing business corridor along Vliet Street, including the recent openings of several small businesses, art galleries, a movie theater, and a wide variety of restaurants and bars. In recent years, residents of The Heights have enjoyed increased activities in Washington Park, including the Urban Ecology Center and free summer concerts at the park’s band shell.
