Do you dream of living in an active community? Highland Creek, located in the northeastern corner of Charlotte, North Carolina, is a great fit! The amenities are one of the reasons I love living here. Let’s take a tour through the actives available in this fun and vibrant neighborhood.

Tennis or Pickleball

Highland Creek offers tennis lessons for adults and children and has leagues playing on two different sets of courts within the neighborhood, Prosperity Park and Clark Creek Park. Find out more.

If you’re feeling adventurous, you can play pickleball, too. What is pickleball? It’s kind of a miniature version of tennis that’s fun for the whole family. They have beginner clinics to learn the game and you can rent the necessary equipment at the Sports Club. Check it out.


Highland Creek has an 18-hole golf course. The golf club offers full service options, including carts, a putting green and driving range. There’s also a restaurant in the clubhouse, The Players Grill, which even features comedy nights. And if your little one wants to learn, The First Tee offers golf lessons at this location, as well. Let’s play golf.

Disc Golf 

Highland Creek recently installed a 9-hole disc golf course beside the Sports Club. If you’ve never played disc golf, it’s a family-friendly game played by throwing discs that are smaller than typical Frisbees into metal baskets. 

Walking Trails and Miles of Sidewalks

There are at least a dozen walking trails within Highland Creek. There are also miles of sidewalks throughout the neighborhood’s villages, complete with crosswalks and lots of challenging hills. There’s always somebody jogging, walking their pets or strolling around with their family. See for your yourself.


If swimming is one of your favorites, Highland Creek has you covered. There are four pools in our neighborhood, two of which have dedicated swim lanes. They also offer swim lessons and swim teams for kids up to 18. Find out more.
