The community of Mulgrave Park in Halifax is unique, diverse, and welcoming. Created as “residual housing” in the 1950s, it is the largest social housing community in nova Scotia. The residents are primarily ofAfrican, nova-Scotian decent. The community was originally designed to be temporary housing only and was not intended or built to support long-term stable residency. As a result, the Mulgrave Park community has faced substantial challenges and barriers both socially and economically. However, these challenges and barriers have not stopped families from making “the Park” their home; a place in which everyone is safe, a place to be proud of, and a place where lifelong friendships are created and valued.
