A Well-Kept Neighbourhood Secret

0 LovesLove

On the east side of Woodroffe Avenue, between Richmond and the Ottawa River is a hidden gem of a neighbourhood where residents are happy to keep it that way! Claimed by Westboro Village as falling within its boundaries, this area offers a special combination of tranquility and urbanity, space and proximity to amenities, good schools, great recreational choices, trees and child-friendly streets. And as soon as the western phase of the LRT goes in, this area will be on everyone’s map! With a station slated for Cleary Avenue accessible alongside the Ottawa River Parkway, these streets will be an easy walk to everywhere in Ottawa.

Woodroffe Avenue is a boundary line for a few things, including public schools. Residents here boast of being in the catchments for some of the west end’s best schools, including Broadview Public, Summit/Fisher Park, Hilson and Nepean High School, among others. For those who revel in outdoor life, the path along the Ottawa River Parkway takes runners and cyclists past beaches and stunning views.

Formerly a neighbourhood of cottages, much has changed in recent decades. There are some beautiful homes, new and old, that sit on spacious lots with privacy galore. Check out this current listing and get to know Woodroffe!
