Centrepointe Ottawa Neighbourhood Tour Ottawa Life with Ottawa Realtor & Ottawa Real Estate Agent

Today we’re heading 14 kilometres west of downtown Ottawa for a tour of the Centrepointe neighbourhood. Formerly part of the city of Nepean, this subdivision is home to about 7,000 residents.


Compared to a lot of the neighbourhoods we’ve visited, Centrepointe was developed fairly recently. Built on former farmland starting in the mid-1980s, this community was intended to be Nepean’s downtown area.


It has a big central park with a small lake, splash pad, playing fields, basketball courts, and baseball diamonds. Unlike many of the neighbouring communities, Centrepointe housing is made up mostly of town homes, low-rise apartments, and terrace homes.

Combined with approximately 1,000 detached homes, the neighbourhood was designed to be self-contained, with shops and offices, public services, and homes all in a relatively compact area.

Centrepointe’s most famous landmark is Ben Franklin Place. Named after a Nepean mayor – who admittedly had a pretty famous name – this building is home to Nepean’s branch of the Ottawa Public Library and the Centrepointe Theatre. It also houses various other city services and boasts an outdoor skating rink.

Centrepointe is quite different in design and feel than the surrounding neighbourhoods. With more businesses and government service offices and fewer residential streets, it feels like its own small town rather than an extension of Ottawa.

Residents of Centrepointe enjoy employment opportunities right in their neighborhood while still being an easy 25-minute drive from downtown Ottawa.

Centrepointe is one of the Ottawa area’s more interesting developments. Envisioned as something of an ideal community, it was eventually developed by the Minto Group and didn’t stray too far from its intended configuration.

If you’re moving to Ottawa and looking for a small town right next to the big city, Centrepointe might be the perfect choice. Residents enjoy concerts and other community events, creating a friendly, cohesive neighbourhood. If you’re brave you can even pay a visit to the local skateboard park. Residential building continues in this neighbourhood, making Centrepointe a great place for prospective homebuyers who want an experience that’s a little different from your usual suburb.
