Westphal is an unincorporated suburban and rural community located in Dartmouth, Nova Scotia and outside of Dartmouth, Nova Scotia. Some of Westphal is considered part of Dartmouth, Nova Scotia and some of it is considered separate from Dartmouth, Nova Scotia. The area is bound by Port Wallace in the north, Waverley Road (Route 318) in the west, Lake Major Road in the east and Main Street (Trunk 7) in the south. The area also includes the watershed and water filtration plant for the Halifax Regional Water Commission that supplies drinking water for the residents of Dartmouth and surrounding communities east of Halifax Harbour. It is named after two Westphal brothers who became admirals in the British navy and who hailed from this part of Nova Scotia - George Augustus Westphal and his elder brother Philip. Their surname is of German origin.
