Highland Creek is an east Scarborough neighbourhood surrounding the Highland Creek water system. Our heritage neighbourhood borders Lake Ontario to the south and The Rouge National Park to the north. At the heart of our neighbourhood is Highland Creek Village, a commercial village centre with roots dating back to the mid 1800’s. In the 1850's, Highland Creek was the largest residential and business centre in the former Township of Scarborough. Highland Creek was officially recognized as a community in 1852, when it was granted its own post office. A little more of Our Vast History... Highland Creek Community Association (HCCA) is a volunteer group of residents who are dedicated to the preservation, development and improvement of the Highland Creek community.
