When planning the Forest Heights Neighborhood, special emphasis was placed on providing easy access to nature and enough recreational space for people to enjoy the outdoors. As you can learn from reading the Forest Heights Homeowner’s Association’s website, each lot has its own yard with easy access to public common areas and neighborhood parks. Two local parks are Forest Heights Park and Mill Pond Park, the latter which is actually maintained by the Forest Heights Neighborhood Association. In addition, nearly 1/3 of Forest Heights’ total acreage has been set aside as common green space to preserve its beauty.


Forest Heights boasts a diverse selection of architectural styles, ranging from classic Northwest, to Colonial, to Mediterranean (and a lot of custom design in between). The Forest Heights Architectural Review Committee focuses on maintaining the attractive mix of architectural styles and reviews each new home design. Everything has uniqueness but flows congruently from one street to the next.
