As you travel west towards the Banff Park Gate you will find Harvie Heights Harvie Heights was originally developed in the late 1950s and early 1960s as a seasonal cottages community with a highway commercial component. The hamlet has shifted over time towards a community of more permanent full-time residents. Both full and part-time residents are active members of the community. Of the 120 homes in the Hamlet about two-thirds are full time residents. This community is under the jursidiction of the MD of Bighorn and has many different nuances and services than Canmore proper. With a Community Hall, tennis court and skating rink, Harvie Heights is a great liite hidden gem in the Canadian Rockies.
