Fairview: (Population: 15,000 – Average Price $ 230,000 ) Fairview was established at the junction of several railway lines operated by various companies in the 19th century. Fairview Station was located in a former German settlement of Dutch Village. Named after Fairview Cove, which forms the extreme southern end of Bedford Basin, Fairview has been gradually gentrifying as urban professionals seeking shorter commutes into Halifax are rediscovering the neighbourhood and its century-old charm.
Clayton Park & Fairmount: (Population: 40,000 – Avg. Price: $ 350,000) Clayton Park was developed beginning in 1962 as a suburb of Halifax located south of Rockingham and bordering the northern part of Fairview. These areas are both an easy commute to downtown with quick access to the 102 and Bedford Highway.
Clayton Park West: (Average Price – $ 425,000) Considered part of Clayton Park, it is just west of the older neighbourhood on the other side of Dunbrack Steet and is comprised of larger, newer and more expensive homes.

Rockingham: (Population: 14,000- Average Price: $ 375,000) This community is situated on the western shore of Bedford Basin north of Clayton Park and Fairview and south of Bedford. The first Europeans to settle in what was to become Rockingham were foreign Protestant farmers and innkeepers, starting in 1784
Wedgewood Park: (Average Price – $ 375,000) Tucked away just between Clayton Park West and the Kearney Lake Road this 1960’s subdivision is popular primarily for the extra-large lots and the convenient location.
