We recommend the Highlands Civic Center in Highlands, NC to Moms, Dads, Grandparents, etc. who are in need of activities to do with smaller children when in the Highlands NC area.
Pack a picnic lunch and set up at the picnic tables and shelter that are within eyesight of the gated playground & basketball court. Make a day out of it in the summer and take the kids swimming at the pool located just outside of the main civic center.
