Fairfield is a pleasant, residential community with a mix of low-rise apartments and single family homes on well-maintained, tree-lined streets, such as Wellington Avenue. It is bounded to the east by Oak Bay, to the north by the community of Rockland, to the west by Beacon Hill Park and to the south by the ocean shoreline of the Strait of Juan de Fuca. Fairfield features the historic Ross Bay Cemetery, as well as many heritage buildings dating from the late Victorian and Edwardian periods. The neighbourhood's schools include the public Sir James Douglas Elementary School and the private Christ Church Cathedral School and Beacon Hill Montessori Pre-School.
Fairfield is the site of Cook Street Village, a commercial area characterized by sidewalk-flanking Horse Chestnut trees and low-height buildings with cafés, restaurants, small boutiques and grocery stores. Another small neighbourhood centre, known as Five Corners, is located at the intersection of Moss Street and Fairfield Road and features Sir James Douglas Elementary School along with a number of other shops and services. The school yard of Sir James Douglas school is the site of the locally-famous Moss Street Market, which runs weekly from April until October.
