Wallis Heights is situated immediately north of Shannon Hill at the southern end of the Bedford Basin, around the northern side of the MacKay bridge in the former city of Dartmouth. It was established by the Department of National Defence in the 1950s to house Royal Canadian Navy personnel attached to the Halifax naval base. The community is named after Provo Wallis.
Defence cutbacks to the Canadian Forces in the mid-1990s and rising real estate costs saw Wallis Heights sold to a private developer. Some units have been renovated and the entire neighbourhood has been resettled by civilians.
