Lower Sackville

Lower Sackville is a suburban community of Halifax, Nova Scotia, Canada. It is part of the urban area of Halifax.HistoryFirst settled in August 1749 by Captain John Gorham, acting on orders from Governor Edward Cornwallis to establish a military fort named Fort Sackville (The community was named after George Germain, 1st Viscount Sackville.) Lower Sackville is now one of the fastest growing communities in Nova Scotia, and contains a mix of residential and commercial development in the Sackville River valley, immediately north of the former town of Bedford. As the community grew, the beautiful oak trees that lined the main drive were cut down one by one due to poor urban planning, and as more homes were desired the farmlands deceased to make way for further urbanization.Before amalgamation into the Halifax Regional Municipality in 1996, Lower Sackville was an unincorporated part of Halifax County (2001 pop.: 27,941). This area of HRM experienced a 7% population growth rate between 1996-2001 (2006 pop.: approx. 35,000). In the 1950s and 60s it was a popular destination for Haligonians seeking entertainment at the drive-in theater, WW2 bomber plane ice cream attraction and Sackville Downs harness racing track which provided entertainment until it closed in 1986.
