Our Community

Fall River is a suburban community in Halifax, Nova Scotia, conveniently located just 10 minutes from Halifax Stanfield International Airport and 25 minutes from downtown Halifax.

Fall River's name is derived from a stream running between Miller Lake and Lake Thomas which had a waterfall that supplied water power for several mills during the 19th century as well as a local electrical utility during the early 20th century.

Hydro-electric power is now generated by a tunnel that carries the water from Miller Lake which once flowed through this stream and down the waterfall. Turbines produce electricity for the main grid, during peak periods.


Fall River has been expanding rapidly over the past 10 years due to the increased presence of schools and retail, and serves as a hub for neighbouring communities.

There are many lakes to enjoy in the Fall River area and its surrounding communities of Wellington, Waverley, Windsor Junction and Lakeview. You will also find a Recreational Centre, Ashburn Golf Club, Laurie Provincial Park and Oakfield Provincial Park.
