Kids love learning. Learning about their community. Learning about their surroundings. Learning about the place they call home. It’s been a long time since the Waverley Gold Rush of 1861 but it’s always fascinating how much Waverley kids enjoy learning about the history of the village and sharing it with their friends and family.
It’s kinda cool to be from a little village with gold in the hills. 😎💛⛏
Over the years Waverley Community Association, and Waverley Heritage Society have worked to provide opportunities for families to participate in fun, interactive learning activities with a focus on local history. Somehow this shared local history promotes connection and builds a sense of community that extends well beyond childhood.
Once a Waverley kid, always a Waverley kid.
It takes a village to do a lot of things, but now we turn to our villagers to keep the legacy of our community learning activities alive.
How can you help?

Mail-in ballots will be accepted until October 31st.
It’s Vote Day! Looking forward to seeing members of the community come together and, VOTING YES for the proposed area rate! We’ve said it before and we’ll say it again. The Village of Waverley is special. It has many unique places, events and activities that we’ve all grown to love and enjoy. It is a community in every sense of the word and this wouldn’t be possible without dedicated volunteers and strong community leadership. It’s unknown to many residents that community volunteers maintain the trails, run the special events, apply for grants and coordinate much of the work and projects that are accomplished throughout the village. We’ve been fortunate over the years to receive decades of municipal support through a community Service Rate. Unfortunately, the Waverley Service Rate was abruptly cancelled by HRM 2 years ago leaving the Waverley Community Association scrambling to maintain operations while working towards establishing both temporary and sustainable long-term funding solutions. The idea of an Area Rate is our last hope to bring funds to support the community-run initiatives that make our village so special, including:
Gold Rush Days
The Village Green Concert Series
MacDonald Sports Park
Waverley Community Hall
Halloween on the Green
Christmas on the GreenAnd more!
It takes a village to do a lot of things, but now we turn to our villagers to keep the legacy of our historic nature trails and community events alive.
