Fairfield Neighbourhood Overview
Fairfield is the southern-most neighbourhood in the city of Victoria and is a pleasant mix of low rise apartments and single family homes – many of which date to the early 1900’s, and are located on well maintained tree lined streets. Fairfield is bordered on the west by the 200-acre Beacon Hill Park, the ocean and scenic Dallas Road to the south and the municipality of Oak Bay to the east.
Fairfield is a favourite among young families and empty nesters because of its walkability and its many amenities, including parks, tennis courts, schools, children’s playgrounds, the Cook Street Village shops and restaurants, and the Moss Street Farmer’s market. It is also an easy walk from most areas of the neighbourhood to Downtown Victoria and the Inner Harbour – making it easy to expand your dining options, attend live theatre or one of the many music events in the Inner Harbour.
What We Love
The walkability and sense of community of the Fairfield neighbourhood gets top marks from us as well as its proximity to Downtown and the waterfront. Dog lovers will enjoy the off-leash area along Dallas Road, while history buffs will be charmed by the countless number of heritage homes. In addition to Cook Street, there are a number of micro villages that feature bakeries, coffee shops, or yoga studios. If you prefer to walk rather than drive – this neighborhood should be on your list.
