Why live in Beaver Bank?

Beaver Bank is a tight-knit community in the Halifax Regional Municipality that borders Lower Sackville. This Halifax suburb is known for being on nature’s doorstep. The area has plenty of scenic lakes and rivers, like Fenerty Lake, Horse Shoe Lake, Hamilton Lake, Square Lake, Tucker Lake, and Rasley Lake, to name a few. This easy access to lakes means endless opportunities for fishing, kayaking, paddleboarding, swimming, as well as hiking, as there are a number of picturesque walking paths and trails near the lakes. Beaver Bank also has two golf courses, Lost Creek Golf Club and Emerson Ridge Driving Range, as well as a children’s camp, Harold T. Barrett Fun Forest Camp. Meanwhile, since it’s such a family-oriented community, you will find lots of recreational programs for youth, adults, and seniors here. These are largely offered by the neighbourhood’s community centre, Beaver Bank Community Centre. Further, despite its small size, Beaver Bank has plenty of amenities for residents to enjoy, like a number of restaurants, Tucker Lake Pizza and Foosing Chinese Restaurant, as well as two convenience stores and a pharmacy. For big box shopping and a major grocery store, residents can quickly and easily travel into Lower Sackville. Of course, Halifax is also close by, which offers even more opportunities for dining, shopping, nightlife, and arts and culture. Some of the must-see attractions in Halifax include the Halifax Citadel National Historic Site, Maritime Museum of the Atlantic, Art Gallery of Nova Scotia, Halifax Public Gardens, Canadian Museum of Immigration at Pier 21, and Point Pleasant Park.

Something wonderful about Beaver Bank

Beaver Bank has a unique history that’s worth exploring. First, the city is believed to have been named after the fact that it was home to a large beaver dam at the time it was settled. The community was settled in the 1780s by Loyalist settlers who escaped to Canada after the end of the American Revolutionary War. Fast forward roughly 200 years when Beaver Bank became home to a Royal Canadian Air Force radar base in the 1950s. The Beaver Bank Radar Base served as an early warning radar station during the Cold War, when bomber raids by the Soviet Union were an increasing threat. Thus, this station in Beaver Bank played an important role in the early history of Canada's and North America's air defence program. Although originally financed by the United States Air Force, the RCAF started to finance it in the 1960s. By the 1970s, it was abandoned after being used as a cement plant for a few years.
