‘Fall’ in Love with Heritage Harbor and Starved Rock Country

The natural beauty of the trees attracts visitors from far and wide as they burst forth in blazing magnificent color. The trees truly show us how beautiful ‘letting go’ can be!

As we enter the final quarter of the year, we can’t help but wistfully long for the halcyon days of summer. However, there’s a sweet resignation to the start of autumn and the restorative and restful effect it has on us—mind, body, and soul. Fall is so much more than pumpkin spice and bonfires, although those things certainly boost our enjoyment of this beloved season in the Midwest.

Fido’s taste of Freedom

” Local dog owners are thrilled to have a place for their pups to “run wild and free!” 

Heritage Harbor is the first to offer a space for our furry friends to run leash-free in Ottawa.  The greatly anticipated new addition of River Run Dog Park has everyone talking.  This fenced-in park is the only space in Ottawa in which owners can take their dogs for a leash-free romp, given local leash ordinances.

This amenity is available for everyone’s enjoyment at no cost, and the overwhelming gratitude has been heart-warming.  People want the best for their dogs, and freedom to run around and play is an important aspect of keeping them healthy and happy. We are enjoying viewing the posts and pictures owners have shared of their fur babies enjoying the space, and we are so happy we can offer this opportunity for pet play dates.

A tremendous amount of gratitude is owed PetSmart and Starved Rock Community Foundation, as these organizations along with Heritage Harbor have made River Run Dog Park possible.  Waste bags and disposal station are provided for your convenience.

The responses to our initial announcement say it all…local dog owners are thrilled to have a place for their pups to “run wild and free!”  Bring Fido out to Heritage Harbor and give him a taste of ‘freedom!’

Heritage Harbor’s location in the heart of Starved Rock Country attracts families interested in the natural beauty and adventure activities characteristic of the area.  At just 90 minutes from downtown Chicago, the proximity to family is a major draw for active adults, keeping you close to family, close to home.  Your new home will become the home base and gathering place for family events and holidays in the years to come—the perfect site for making memories to cherish.
