Sackville Overview

Sackville is located mere minutes beyond Bedford following either the Bedford highway to route #1, or by taking the Trans Canada Highway Route # 102 out of Halifax and exiting on Route #101 then to Route #1 (Sackville Drive).

Sackville has grown tremendously over the last 30 years, from a small outlying community to a sprawling suburb with over 70,000 people.

Everything you need can be found in Sackville, including your shopping, dining, entertainment, and service needs.

Most shopping alternatives can be found in small outdoor shopping centers along Sackville Drive; however there are larger box stores like Wal-mart, Canadian Tire, Kent Building Supplies, Fast food, etc., found as stand alone buildings.

Sackville has always been an affordable choice for young families or those not wanting to spend a lot in order to be closer to Halifax; however, over the last 10 years the prices have increased somewhat. The styles are generally semi-detached homes, small split entries, small bungalows, but larger homes have been built in new areas over the last 10 years.  All homes in Sackville offer city water and sewer. Going a little further out Sackville drive gives you the opportunity to be on larger lots with some homes located on lakes, with well and septic.
