Walk, walk and then walk some more. Fairfield is made for exploring by foot and bike. Stroll along the beach, enjoying scenic views of the ocean and mountains, or walk through fields of wildflowers in Beacon Hill Park. Fairfield makes it easy to immerse yourself in the wonders of nature as you go about your day.
This isn’t where you’ll find office buildings or high-rises. Instead, beautifully upgraded heritage homes, a stock of older, low-rise rental buildings, and newer character conversion stratas and townhomes create a neighbourhood that feels equally vibrant and historic. This is what neighbourhoods used to be long ago, and what most strive to be today.
