A Residential Community with a Rural Heart


Elk Run Heights was founded by people who wanted to escape the big city life but weren’t quite ready to go fully rural. Located to the southeast of Waterloo, this small residential community has all the benefits of a large job market and easy access to the heart of the Cedar Valley via the Interstate. Whether it’s commuting to work, taking the kids to school, or heading out for an evening of entertainment, a trip into town takes mere minutes.


Despite its proximity to the city, Elk Run Heights is a small town at heart. While many families have lived in Elk Run Heights for several generations, the community’s friendly atmosphere welcomes newcomers with open arms. From the low crime rate to the low cost of living, residents appreciate the peace of mind that comes from living in a peaceful neighborhood.
