Heritage Landing is a residential subdivision developed originally in 2003 and is continually adding custom homes by several well known builders such as Lennar and D.R. Horton. its 1,154 single-family home entitlement is almost totally built-out. Heritage Landing features an unusually diverse collection of home site options, including 40', 50', 60', 70' and 80' wide lot sizes with single and two-story homes. At the heart of the neighborhood is an originally-conceived and inventively-designed amenity center modeled after the great Appalachian and Adirondack summer camps of our youth - known as Camp Heritage.
The entranceway to Heritage Landing is off of the River Road and southern extension of the William Bartram Scenic Highway (C.R. 13) - the historic riverside route along the St. Johns River from Jacksonville to St. Augustine, Palatka and eventually Daytona. Heritage Landing Parkway is itself a scenic byway, extending 2,000' through lush landscaping with panoramic views over the community waterways. The parkway arrives at a focal intersection, overlooking Camp Heritage and its tall, forest-service-lookout-tower-styled water slide.
Designed with families in mind, most of the streets in Heritage Landing end in cul-de-sacs overlooking woodlands, lakes or open spaces so that each small collection of homes can enjoy greatly reduced vehicular traffic and the elimination of pass-thru travel. Heritage Landing is surrounded on its eastern and western boundaries by preserved conservation lands.
Camp Heritage is the heartbeat of the neighborhood. Twin swimming pools with water jets, a jumbo water slide, animal-tracked and leaf-imprinted "beaches" and a young children's wading stream with fun sculptures of manatees and alligators get most of the action throughout the summer. The pool complex includes the Florida-cracker-styled multi-use ballroom, a fitness and exercise room, extensive sunning and lounging decks, shade pavilions, beach volleyball courts and "bird-house" restrooms. The Camp has an open-air fire and story-telling ring and a starry-night projection screen for movie events. A lake boardwalk cross-over links the Camp to a school bus stop.
Athletic fields include a full-size, competition soccer field and a little-league baseball field with a scoreboard and ramshackle, wooden dugouts and bleachers. Multiple basketball courts and a fully-fledged tennis center round out the core amenities. Right next door to the Camp is a secure compound for resident storage of boats, trailers and RV vehicles.
