District 10 – Halifax – Bedford Basin West has a population of approximately 24,700 residents, and is made up of the neighborhoods of Fairview, Rockingham and Kearney Lake, and includes the areas of Birch Cove and sections of Clayton Park. The district is a perfect combination of the old and the new.
Fairview, an older, well-established community sits next door to Clayton Park, one of the newest areas in Halifax, which has been characterized by significant development over the past 20 years.
Aside from enjoying rapid development, residents in the area benefit from significantly lower rental rates compared to accommodations in the Halifax core. Residents also enjoy close proximity to extensive shopping and restaurants in nearby Bayer’s Lake Business Park. Bayer’s Lake is one of the largest business parks in Atlantic Canada and a premier destination for shopping, dining and entertainment. Also nearby is the Clayton Park Shopping Centre which offers access to local retail shops, major grocery chains as well as restaurants, pubs and specialty stores.
