Bedford is a great place to raise a growing family. Homes in this area are typically newer construction, and a vehicle would be required to commute into Downtown Halifax.

Bedford is a great suburban community just 16 km away from downtown Halifax. Bedford is on the northwestern end of the Bedford Basin, an extension of the Halifax Harbour, which ends just before Nova Scotia Highway 102 and the Bedford Bypass, next to Lower Sackville. The March 23, 1997 issue of Maclean's magazine rated Bedford as being the "Best Community to Live in Canada."

Grab a coffee from The Nook Espresso Bar and walk on the Boardwalk along Shore Drive. The views of the Bedford Basin are fabulous. There is an outdoor 25m pool and smaller splash pool located at the Lions Park on Shore Drive.
