Woodside is an unincorporated middle income urban locality of Dartmouth, within the Halifax Regional Municipality, Nova Scotia. The community is divided into North Woodside and South Woodside. Woodside is home to two hospitals: the Dartmouth General Hospital and the Nova Scotia Hospital.


Several businesses reside within the boundaries of Woodside. These include the Imperial Oil Refinery, the Irving Oil terminal, and an offshore industrial park called the Woodside Industrial Park. In the Business Park businesses include Aecon Fabco. Another institution is InNOVAcorp, formerly the Nova Scotia Research Foundation.


A new development called Russell Lake West is planned for both single family and multiple family dwellings. On the grounds next to the Nova Scotia Hospital, a new campus has been Nova Scotia Community College. Also a new shopping mall, Dartmouth Gate, is under development at the site of the former Hershey Moirs chocolate factory.
