Bayshore Ottawa Neighbourhood Tour – Ottawa Life with Ottawa Realtor and Ottawa Real Estate Agent

Today we’re visiting the Bayshore Ottawa and Belltown Ottawa neighbourhoods in Ottawa’s West end. This eclectic area combines Belltown, a former cottage community with single-family homes and tree-lined streets, with the 1960s era town homes and apartment buildings of Bayshore.

You’ll find plenty of things to do in Bayshore-Belltown. At the eastern border of Belltown is Britannia Park. This Ottawa River recreation area filled with beaches and boating dates back to 1900. It was such a popular summer destination that it sparked the building of Belltown’s cottages in the 1920s.


Outdoor enthusiasts can visit Andrew Hayden Park along the western edge of Belltown. You’ll find picnickers, a bandshell, and plenty of walking trails for birdwatching. Check for events at the community centre or play some tennis while you’re there.

Do you need to do some shopping? Stop by the busy Bayshore Shopping Centre. Constructed in 1973 with two floors and 123,000 square feet, the mall has since grown to three floors with 883,250 square feet of retail stores.

This wonderfully diverse neighborhood also offers a nice selection of specialty grocery stores in the very walkable Carling Avenue area.

Have some fun and get some exercise at the Belltown Dome. Built in 1967 as part of Expo67, this geodesic dome is a great place to ice skate while you bask in the vibes of 1960s architecture. It’s not the biggest skating arena in Ottawa, but it’s the one with the most personality.


In addition to cottages, apartments, and town homes, Bayshore-Belltown is home to Accora Village. This community has high-rise apartment buildings, town homes, and garden homes along with amenities including a recreation centre.

Accora Village has space for 7,000 residents. The Bayshore-Belltown neighbourhood is a diverse, busy community with indoor and outdoor recreation and a variety of housing options for families of all sizes.
