Fairview-Clayton Park is one of the fastest growing and ethnically diverse districts in the province.The riding is primarily residential, containing new single-family homes and high-density apartment complexes favoured by people moving into the city for the first time and those who want to be closer to amenities without being in the downtown core. The district includes the area south of Mount Saint Vincent University and Lacewood Drive, as well as the Washmill Lake area. Plenty of green space, quick access to parks and trail systems, 3 elementary schools, and 2 Jr High schools make Fairview-Clayton Park a thriving family oriented community. In 2021, the electoral boundaries were redrawn and residents of the Bayers Westwood area are now constituents of Halifax Armdale.
