About District 4
District 4 is one of the largest districts in Colchester and is located in the southern region of the county, bordering Pictou County to the east, Halifax County to the south, and the Town of Stewiacke and Shubenacadie River to the West.
Within this district, the beautiful Stewiacke River flows from east to west, offering many points of access to the river itself. Included in these points is Crockett Park at the upper end, and at the lower end, Stewiacke River Park. This true gem offers picnicking areas, a walking trail and extensive open and forested areas. Follow the river and you reach one of the provinces's major waterways, the Shubenacadie River. Follow it further and you come to one of the busier provincial parks, the Shubenacadie Wildlife Park.
Principally rural, this district is dissected by numerous other waterways including the St. Andrews River. These support the district as a major agricultural area. Nevertheless, the entrepreneurial spirit is alive and well with dozens of small businesses operating here.
Farm and forest, field and falls, a scenic drive any tourist would enjoy.
