The Richmond community of Seafair was developed as part of the 1960’s housing boom and continues to provide peaceful, convenient neighbourhood years later. Beautiful and sought-after Seafair is home to West Dyke Trail and the marshlands of Sturgeon Banks. Characterized by wide roads and culs-de-sac, Seafair is located in West Richmond and made up of sub-neighbourhoods, including the ‘Monds’ (where all streets end in ‘mond’), the ‘Mores’ (yes, all streets end in ‘more’), Boyd Park, and Quilchena. Within Seafair, residential housing of all types is offered. Grand new homes are gradually replacing the houses from the 60’s but many original single family homes remain. There is a vast selection of housing options in this family-friendly neighbourhood: single family homes, townhomes and apartment complexes. Well established schools include Dixon and Gilmore Elementary, and Hugh Boyd Secondary.
The neighbourhood shopping mall provides many amenities including a major food chain, restaurants, a bank and a medical clinic. The West Richmond Community Centre and Hugh Boyd Athletic Park offer Seafair residents night-lighted fields and a vast array of community courses and sports opportunities, including tennis courts, gyms, outdoor basketball courts and a pitch ‘n’ putt golf course.
