"Fun to sit by the pond"
Cambridge Highlands is an area on the northeastern portion of Cambridge, and it has two distinct sections. The eastern area is mostly commercial and industrial while the western end is residential. It borders Fresh Pond as well. It’s an area full of Arts and Crafts bungalows and Victorian houses, a lot of greenspace at Lusitania Field and the pond, and plentiful shopping along Alewife Brook Parkway. This small area of less than 700 people is popular with young families who have children and who like a real sense of neighborhood. It’s a very walkable area and has great access to public transportation.
