The neighborhood of Heritage extends south from the Central Expressway to just past Iowa Avenue, and lies between North Mathilda Avenue to the west and North Wolfe Road to the east. It’s also known as the Heritage District. Streets here include East McKinley Avenue, Carroll Street, Azara Place, and East Olive Avenue. Unknown

There are no schools or parks located in Heritage, but a few blocks west in Sunnyvale West is Vargas Elementary, Sunnyvale Christian and the District Office for Sunnyvale, in addition to the Stratford School and the Catholic Academy of Sunnyvale. Washington Park, complete with a swimming pool, is also located in this area only a short walk from Heritage. It features four basketball courts, two tennis courts, paved walking baths, a baseball and softball diamond, and a playground as well. One truly unique feature of Heritage, however, is that it is only two blocks from the Sunnyvale Library.

Heritage is also very close to East El Camino Real and all the shops and restaurants that line its borders. These include Chaat House, an informal stop for Indian street snacks; Thai Spoons, featuring simply great Thai food; Edible Arrangements; Game Stop; Purlescence Yarns, a fiber craft shop that gives lessons; Office Depot and many more.
