Family-friendly communities brimming with parks, lakes and suburban charm
The Bedford-Sackville Region is made up of a collection of family-oriented communities located around the most internal point of the Halifax Harbour, roughly 20 minutes drive from Downtown Halifax.
Bedford sits at the northwestern end of the Bedford Basin and offers brilliant views of the Halifax Harbour from DeWolf Park. The area is known for Sunnyside Mall, the charming Bedford Basin Farmers’ Market and Garden Centre, and historic Hemlock Ravine Park.
The Sackville area is growing with new retailers and restaurants popping up all the time. It’s the perfect stopover destination on your way to Wolfville or the Annapolis Valley!
