Spryfield is a community in Halifax. Right on the edge of downtown Halifax, it is just a 15-minute drive from the downtown core. The community was named after Captain Lieutenant-General William Spry who settled in the area in 1769.
With a population of 10,864, Spryfield is quieter than the neighbouring city of Halifax. The great majority of residents work elsewhere, and few local businesses thrive. The community has become more of a ‘bedroom community' as the downtown core of Halifax flourished.
Historically a farming community, residents enjoy the nature this community has to offer. There are many wooden trails, urban gardens and vast lakes to keep locals busy.
Spryfield has numerous lakes of all different sizes that are great for swimming and non-motorized activities during the warmer months. In addition to the lakes, there are numerous locations for exploring, hiking and even berry picking. There are baseball fields, soccer fields, basketball and tennis courts, a skate park, and a skating rink.
