Cambridge Highlands is a neighborhood of Cambridge located on the northeastern edge of the city. It is comprised of two distinct areas.

The eastern part consists of mostly commercial and light industrial uses. A strip mall-style regional retail center is located here, alongside the Alewife Brook Parkway (State Route 2) and near the MBTA Alewife Red Line Station in North Cambridge.

A wide corridor of railroad lines is the northern border of the neighborhood, which divides the adjacent office/industrial area into two parts, known as the “Triangle” (officially part of North Cambridge) and the “Quadrangle” (officially part of the Cambridge Highlands). The residential core of the neighborhood lies at its western end, bordering Belmont. The Fresh Pond Reservation borders the neighborhood to the south.
