Resting between the Cherry Hills neighborhood to the south and the Heritage Hills neighborhood to the north is Heritage Hills Park. North Pino Arroyo runs east west through the park, connecting to Heritage East and the Quintessence neighborhood further uphill, and the Cherry Hills Library and shopping center to the west off Barstow Street.
By car, Heritage Hills Park is accessible from Ventura Avenue and by foot or bike can be entered via the trail along North Pino Arroyo or by residential streets on either side of the park. On busy days the parking lot can be full, and the trail heavily used. The grass field provides enough room to have two soccer fields running east west, but is also used for picnicking, playing catch, flying kites and as a resting spot for local wildlife.
On the east side of the park is a half basketball court and on the west side there are swings and two playground areas for younger and older kids. North of the playground is a bridge over North Pino that connects to Gettysburg Road and to the south there are concrete and dirt trails joggers, bicyclists and walkers use for exercise and transport.
The trail links to a wider network that can lead explorers to the Sandias, the bosque and other areas of interest. Wildlife spotted along the trails and near Heritage Hills Park include foxes, coyotes, hawks, and lizards. The park sits at an altitude above 5,000 feet and the weather in the area can change rapidly. There are no bathrooms or potable water available at the park and trail users are encouraged to hydrate and apply sunscreen or wear a hat before and during engaging in activities in the area.
