Welcome to Barrhaven West! Or as it is known locally Old Barrhaven West. Bounded by Fallowfield Road to the north, Strandherd Road to the west, and the CN rail line to the east, this neighbourhood was established in the early 1960s. Originally, this 200 acres of land was inhabited by First Nations peoples, then turned farmer’s fields, and was originally destined to be a horse race track owned by Mel Barr – to whom the suburb of Barrhaven got its name – but was instead developed into the established suburban neighbourhood it is today.

With one main road running through this area – you’ll see homes built on curved streets and non-linear grids, which makes this area attractive to families to see their children play safely in the streets of their community without risk of through traffic and clustered parking. I think we should go check it out – I know you’re gonna love it!
