High Point Community Park
On the site of the former High Point Elementary School
Design: In progress
In partnership with the Pinellas County School District and the City of Largo, Pinellas County is constructing the High Point Community Park on the site of the former High Point Elementary School.
In 2021, Pinellas County formed a community advisory group to create a plan to guide improvements to the High Point neighborhood. The advisory group consisted of residents, service providers, business owners, educators, clergy and law enforcement from the area. The group developed goals, strategies and priority projects for the High Point community.
A community meeting and online feedback survey confirmed the advisory group’s recommendations and provided additional, specific ideas. The High Point Community Park was identified as a priority project in the plan.
The park will serve students of High Point Elementary during school hours and will be open to the residents of the High Point community after school hours and on the weekends. The park will include amenities such as multi-purpose athletic fields, basketball courts, lighting, playground, walking trail, picnic shelter and restrooms adjacent to High Point Elementary School.
