Vision, Mission, Who We Are


As the community of choice, provide the best environment, recreation, and quality of life for our members.


Our mission is to preserve and enhance Heritage Palms as an active adult community in a country club setting. This will be accomplished through maintenance of a high quality of life, effective management of finances and facilities, enforcement of the rules and covenants, and promotion of community involvement in a well maintained, safe and neighborly environment for the common benefit and enjoyment of all homeowners.

Who We Are


Heritage Palms is the Coachella Valley’s premier 55+ active adult community. Located in Indio, California, home to festivals and concerts and surrounded by mountains and blue skies, residents enjoy a lifestyle supported by extensive amenities which include golf, tennis, pickleball, and indoor and outdoor pools. The 20,000 square foot clubhouse houses a beautiful ballroom, grille room and bar, library, craft room, card rooms, and billiard room. Adjacent buildings provide a fitness center, dance rehearsal room, the Heritage Room, which hosts meetings, groups, and small gatherings, and administrative and maintenance facilities.


Heritage Palms is a master planned, gated community of 1004 single family, one-story homes located south of Interstate 10 at the intersection of Fred Waring Drive and Jefferson Street. Original construction, under the guidance of US Homes, began in 1996. Lennar later completed the community with total build out in 2006.

Homeowners Association

Heritage Palms Homeowners Association is managed by a five-member Board of Directors elected at large from its members. An Association General Manager oversees the nearly one hundred support personnel that make our community run smoothly and maintain its assets.

By-laws and CC&Rs govern the community, and the community maintains a strong financial standing through its careful management and budgeting philosophies.
