With rolling hills, tranquil lakes and evergreen trees, New Ross is nestled in the heart of Nova Scotia. This relaxed rural community and its surrounding settlements have an approximate year round population of 1700. New Ross sits inland on Route # 12, half way between Kentville, by the Bay of Fundy and Chester Basin, on the South Shore. New Ross’s natural resources not only provide beauty, but are the main economic base as well. Being in such close proximity to Halifax, the Valley and the South Shore, the New Ross area, with its plentiful pristine lakes, is a popular cottage region. A visit to the always popular Ross Farm is exciting regardless of your age.
