Moving to Kentville

Moving to Kentville

Move to a life that’s…well, moving.

You know that feeling of being emotionally affected—moved—by a great piece of music, or a wonderful movie? People who live in Kentville feel that a lot. Just by going about their daily lives. This is a special place, alive with special moments. Which is why you might want to start calling Kentville home, too.

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 parks and trails, or all of the top notch indoor and outdoor recreation opportunities that encourage a healthy lifestyle. It’s also that town is so walkable—so you can easily choose to leave the car at home.
