South Freedom

South Freedom lies on the other side of the South River from the downtown area and it is the area that may face the greatest challenges in Freedom's future. Parts of it are affluent or middle class, but other parts of South Freedom are stricken with poverty and plagued by crime, particularly the influence of organized crime.

  5. Port Regal

    Similar in many respects to North Bay, Port Regal is somewhat less affluent, many of its older homes and mansions turned into bed-and-breakfast inns. Port Regal clusters around Lake MacKenzie and the peninsulas jutting out into the bay.

  6. Lonely Point

    The most isolated point of land in Freedom, Lonely Point is named for its rocky and desolate terrain. There are sandbars and scrub plants, but little else along the narrow peninsula. It is home to the Lonely Point Naval Base, Blackstone Federal Penitentiary, and Star Island Space Control Center.
