Why live in Dartmouth?

The town of Dartmouth, located in Metro Halifax and situated on the River Dart, is an East Coast gem. Nicknamed the “City of Lakes,” Dartmouth is a haven for buyers looking to enjoy all the natural beauty that Nova Scotia offers.

Quality and diversity of education in Dartmouth

Since Dartmouth is technically part of Metro Halifax, the town is served by the Halifax Regional Centre for Education, the largest school board in Atlantic Canada. While the Halifax Regional Centre for Education operates 135 schools in the area, 23 of them are located in Dartmouth. These schools range from elementary schools to high schools and junior high schools. Meanwhile, residents of Dartmouth have access to a wide range of post-secondary institutions, especially when you consider its close proximity to Halifax. In Dartmouth, you will find Dartmouth College and the Nova Scotia Community College (NSCC) - Institute of Technology Campus, and in the wider Halifax area lies Dalhousie University, St. Mary’s University, Mount Saint Vincent University, NSCAD University, University of King’s College, and the Atlantic School of Theology, among others.

Most populous cities in Dartmouth

Some of the most populous neighbourhoods in Dartmouth include Southdale, Hawthorne, Manor Park, Woodside, Chrichton Park, Russell Lake, Cole Harbour, and Portland Hills.

Quality of infrastructure for Dartmouth

Dartmouth benefits from its proximity to Halifax, which allows residents to take advantage of the city’s excellent transportation system. For instance, Dartmouth residents are just over 20 minutes by car from Halifax Stanfield Airport, Nova Scotia’s largest and only international airport. Meanwhile, in downtown Halifax, you will find a Via Rail station, connecting Dartmouth residents with the rest of Canada. There is also a Maritime Bus terminal located in Dartmouth, which allows locals to travel throughout the Maritimes and to other Canadian provinces by bus. Further, Halifax Transit is responsible for servicing all of Metro Halifax, and that includes Dartmouth, so residents have access to a range of bus and ferry routes courtesy of Halifax’s public transit system. Dartmouth also has its own hospital, Dartmouth General Hospital. However, again, given the area’s proximity to Halifax, locals will also benefit from being near the largest, most reputable hospital in Atlantic Canada, the Queen Elizabeth II Health Sciences Centre.

Safety and security for Dartmouth

The crime rate in Dartmouth is far below the national average, making it a safe place to call home for residents of all ages. The area is served by the Halifax Regional Police. In case of emergency, always dial 9-1-1.

Dartmouth property market

Dartmouth is an affordable place to call home, which is what makes it so attractive to newcomers and locals alike. It has a laid back, residential feel but is only a stone’s throw away from downtown Halifax. As such, the residents of Dartmouth are diverse. To accommodate this wide-ranging population, the property types available are equally diverse, ranging from bungalows, apartments, and condos to townhouses, single-storey homes, and more.

Standard of living in Dartmouth

Dartmouth boasts a high standard of living, which is why locals love it. Houses here are reasonably priced compared to other Canadian cities. Plus, it offers access to top-notch educational and healthcare services. Beyond that, Dartmouth has economic opportunities for all and bountiful natural beauty. The Ocean is only a short drive away, as are plenty of lakes, perfect for kayaking, paddling, canoeing, boating, and more.

Something wonderful about Dartmouth

Given Dartmouth’s waterfront location, it probably won’t come as a surprise that the area is served by an extensive route of ferries. But did you know that the ferry system that connects Dartmouth with Halifax is the oldest saltwater passenger ferry service in North America? That’s right. The Halifax Transit ferry system has been operating for over 250 years and continues to be in operation today. Historically, the ferry system was a crucial link between Dartmouth and Halifax, carrying all kinds of food and other products. However, since the opening of the Angus L. MacDonald Bridge in 1955, the ferry no longer transports goods. Instead, it is now solely a passenger ferry, with five vessels in operation.
