Borden Farm Ottawa Neighbourhood Tour Ottawa Life with Ottawa Realtor & Ottawa Real Estate Agent

Welcome to Borden Farm—Fisher Glen. It’s a fun day here at Living in Ottawa’s neighbourhood tours because I grew up in Borden Farm! Like many of the communities west of Ottawa, Borden Farm—Fisher Glen was part of the city of Nepean before it was amalgamated into Ottawa in 2001.


The area was developed in the late 1960s and early 1970s and during my childhood was a busy hive of families and lots of activity. What was brand new back in my day is now all grown up with beautiful big trees and large lots.

Borden Farm is turning over now, as older residents move and families once again fill the homes. Some of that 1970s architecture needs a little TLC, making this an excellent choice for anyone moving to Ottawa who loves a DIY project.


Fisher Glen didn’t see development until the 1980s. Minto Construction, the company that developed most of Nepean’s neighbourhoods, filled the Borden Farm—Fisher Glen neighborhood with mostly detached single-family homes. You’ll find townhomes in the Fisher Glen development area as well.

As you might have guessed from the name, this residential neighborhood was built on the former Borden Dairy Farm. One of its more unique features is the placement of parks and bike trails behind the houses.

This extra green space and plenty of parks offer the 7,000 residents lots of outdoor recreation space. They enjoy easy access to schools, shopping, and local restaurants. The neighbourhood is also adjacent to the Rideau River.

Sitting about 13 kilometres from downtown Ottawa, it’s a convenient commute from the city. I can attest that Borden Farm—Fisher Glen is a terrific place to live and raise a family. The changes that come with time have turned my childhood home base into a lovely, mature neighbourhood with quiet streets and lots of open space.
