Effortlessly active

One of the wonderful things about a town like Kentville is that it’s easy to choose active living. It’s not just the trails, rec centre, arena, and pool, of course, that encourage a healthy lifestyle. It’s also that town is so walkable—so you can easily choose to leave the car at home.
