North Shore, Heritage Mountain in Port Moody - Vancouver neighbourhood
These communities are on the north shore of the Inlet, and lie on a gentle slope up the mountain. This neighbourhood is built around Inlet Park and Port Moody's new City Hall and recreation centre at Inlet Park. The Inlet lies along Ioco Road, overlooking Shoreline Park, the Heritage Mountain community shares its name with its main street. Part-way up the hill are the neighbourhoods of Twin Creeks and Sentinel Hill.

Shopping is clustered around Heritage Mountain Shoppers Village, with more shopping to the east in Coquitlam along the Barnet Highway.
The community is served by two elementary schools and the Heritage Woods Secondary school. Douglas College's Coquitlam campus is just to the east and Simon Fraser University is a significant commute to the west.
