Wendy was so easy to work with and accommodating to every request! I loved how responsive she was, too. Lorenzo did a great job with set up, clean up, and attending to our every need during our event. I would definitely host another event at the Highland Park Community House!Sent on 01/30/2020

Handsome venue at a reasonable price
The HPCH was able to accommodate an event of ours at the last minute. The space has an old North Shore elegance but clean and neat . It has a pretty good kitchen than makes it easier for your caterer to do their job.Sent on 02/25/2020

Fantastic during planning
My wedding reception will take place here in a few weeks, so even though I cannot yet comment on the event itself, I just have to leave a review with how happy I have been with Highland Park Community House during the planning process. They have been very responsive in answering my questions and more than accommodating to every little request I have. They have eliminated a lot of stress I probably would have otherwise felt by being so kind throughout the whole planning process. I can't wait for my reception there! I think this is an absolutely gorgeous venue at an amazing price, and I really love that I have the ability to bring in my own decorations/vendors/etc. to make the space my own.Sent on 12/18/2019
We absolutely love working here. It is beautiful and the staff is always great to work with. We can't say enough good things about this place.
An intimate space for your quaint event! Staff and food are excellent. Personalize the space by working with a floral professional for your table decor. A great event space for weddings or other special occasions! Working with local vendors often saves you money and hassle!
Great Venue for a wedding or any other kind of event. Spacious and easy to work at. Helpful staff and flexible with the vendors. Have worked there for many years. Wendy is easy to work with and knows her stuff
