Carlington Ottawa

Say hello to the charming neighbourhood of Carlington, located in the River Ward. Sitting neatly in the heart of Ottawa, this bustling area was first settled in the 1920s. During that time, there were 400 homes from the early years which are still standing today.

From there, the area saw its first big housing boom shortly after World War II. Thousands of homes were built for returning soldiers in the fifteen years following the war. Located on streets named for military notables, these houses became known as war homes or veteran homes.

Home construction continued at a brisk pace for two more decades. By 1980, the community showcased a wide range of home styles reflecting its 60 years of growth. In recent years some of the older veteran homes have been replaced with brand new houses.

One of Carlington’s defining features is Carlington Hill. It is one of the largest hills in Ottawa, it was once a ski hill. Built over five years and named Anne Heggtveit Hill in honor of Canada’s first gold medal-winning Olympic alpine skier, the project was completed in 1965.

PRESENT DAY in CArlington

Today, Carlington Hill is a popular sledding hill at the centre of Carlington Park. Part of the park is an Urban Environmental Protection Zone—a healthy, natural swath of green space.

The neighbourhood is diverse and busy. Shopping, hospitals, community centres, and an active community association make the area welcoming and convenient. Young families relocating to Ottawa will find a vibrant community and affordable homes here.

If you’re moving to Ottawa, this community is centrally located with easy access to the rest of the city. Bike paths, trails, and the nearby Experimental Farm give it a comfortable, country feel with all of the big city benefits of living in Ottawa.

Let’s take a look around in the video tour to see what this neighbourhood has to offer.
