Mid-century modern is the prominent architectural home style home buyers will encounter in Cameron Heights, as many homes were built around the same time. Craftsman is another less common style you may find. These houses typically have a simplistic front-of-house design, usually with minimal landscaping.

Due to the layout of Cameron Heights, many homes benefit from mountain and water views. For this reason, several houses have been built as two-storey buildings with minimal landscaping. The elevation difference can also be felt just by crossing the street, making it, so homes are slightly staggered on the hillside. For those that are unable to glimpse the inlet, a myriad of beautiful, tall trees like Douglas Firs provide a lovely alternative. 

There are very few commercial real estate options within Cameron Heights. On Mallory Drive, a science observatory has an office, but that is about all you will find.

About Cameron Heights

Cameron Heights is a residential neighbourhood on the southern end of Port Alberni, BC. It is known for being a family-friendly neighbourhood with exceptional views of the Alberni Inlet and Arbutus Ridge. 

Residents enjoy Cameron Heights because it feels tucked out of the way without being too far from the conveniences of town. At only a minute or two drive away, the commercial district of Uptown is an area with many shops, restaurants, and banks. Just down the hill from Uptown is the Harbour Quay, another wonderful waterfront area with shops, a restaurant, and a seaside playground. 

Beautiful views, cool breezes from the inlet, and sounds like birds chirping from the trees are what locals notice the most about Cameron Heights. Places like Cameron Heights Park or nearby Canal Waterfront Park and Alberni Inlet Trail are options to enjoy the best of nature, unwind and relax. For this reason, residents thoroughly enjoy the privacy of Cameron Heights and the accessibility of everyday amenities being so near. Not all neighbourhoods can provide a balance, but it is found within Cameron Heights.

Traffic through this neighbourhood is quite minimal and usually reserved for residents, aside from the occasional school or city bus. The city bus also helps connect the region to the rest of the local transit system, with the Southside route cruising through about once an hour. Curved streets, a higher elevation, and a border of the thick forest also help muffle sounds from the city and logging trucks travelling up Ship Creek Road. This has created a residential neighbourhood with a slower pace of life, perfect for retirees and families. 

Things to Do in Cameron Heights

Hike the Alberni Inlet Trail

Broken into several phases, the Alberni Inlet Trail is a moderately challenging hiking trail just moments away from Cameron Heights. Popular with dog walkers and hiking enthusiasts, this trail contains hills with a beautiful reward. 

In several designated lookout spots, hikers can take a moment to rest and enjoy panoramic views of the Alberni Valley. The first lookout has views of the city of Port Alberni from the south end, looking towards the north. Thick coastal forests line the paths providing ample opportunity for wildlife sightings and an up-close look at the natural flora. 

Relax at Canal Waterfront Park

In one area where the waters of the Alberni Inlet kiss the shores, several residents enjoy the serene, quiet park of Canal Waterfront Park. This park is usually less inhabited than others in town, giving it a reputation for being one of the more relaxing areas to visit. A communal fire pit, a covered gazebo area, portable washrooms, a volleyball net, and a large, grassy field for playing catch with your pup are some of the top features. Although there are several picnic tables and benches, visitors also enjoy bringing their folding chairs and setting up on the beach to watch the boats go by or the stunning views during sunset.
