Porter's Lake

Porter’s Lake has become one of the fastest growing communities in the HRM. It is the perfect combination of country living just minutes from the main attractions of the city. Porter’s Lake is one of the largest lakes in the province at 19 km long and provides many access points for boating, swimming, fishing, water sports, etc.

The lake is connected to the Atlantic Ocean near Lawrencetown Beach, because of this, the lake is almost completely fresh water at the north end to nearly that of ocean water at the south end. 

 Porter’s Lake consists of over 3200 occupants most of which commute to jobs in Halifax and Dartmouth but many have opened small business’ in the community.
