Prairie Heights is a newer subdivision on the north edge of Davenport, Iowa. A public library and park are named for and located in the community. There are no businesses at present and nearby commercial areas cannot be reached on foot due to natural barriers such as the creek and man-made impediments such as freeways and train tracks. The residential neighborhood, however, is an enjoyable place to walk with your dog and nearby rural farmland is picturesque.  

Walking in Prairie Heights in the winter, however, will be impeded by cold temperatures on most winter days with occasional snow storms. If you walk your pet daily in Prairie Heights, you should be prepared to bundle up in winter with warm outerwear. Summers are hot and Prairie Heights does not have a lot of shade, so you may want to avoid walking in the middle of the day when temperatures hit their maximum.

This subdivision on the outer edge of Davenport is new and many homes and properties in the area are still under construction. Construction sites can pose a hazard for pedestrians, so you should be aware of your surroundings when walking with your dog here. This neighborhood is surrounded by scenic rural farmland.  

The terrain here is relatively flat with large suburban properties that do not have mature landscaping. Development in the area is ongoing and some residential lots are vacant and not yet under development. There are train tracks running along the west side of the community. Deere Creek, the Deere Creek ravine, and associated natural areas also sit along the western edge of the community and terrain in this area is more varied. The entrance to the subdivisions has two natural areas situated on either side of the road. These natural spots have open terrain, newly planted trees, and ponds on each side.

The Prairie Heights trail is a paved pedestrian path located on the public library property. Although much of this area is open, landscaping with trees is planned for the future. The Prairie Heights Park is a 220-acre park located and named for the community. The park has baseball diamonds, a concession stand, a playground, restrooms, and a picnic shelter. Plans for future amenities are in the works and a dog park is being considered for the area. 

A short trip to the west will take you to the Goose Creek Park and the Goose Creek Trail. The greenway is a .5-mile paved pedestrian and cycling trail. The rest of the park provides 28 acres with baseball diamonds, playgrounds, a spray park, and picnic sites. Access to the Davenport trail system, which includes the Duck Creek Trail and Mississippi Riverfront Trail which provide longer scenic greenways, can be reached with a short drive.
