History of the Civic Hospital Ottawa

The neighbourhood of Civic Hospital is bordered by Island Park Drive to the west, the Queensway to the north, Railway Street to the east, and Carling Avenue to the south. It is primarily a residential neighbourhood, aside from the hospital and some commercial and office buildings along Carling Avenue. First settled in the early 1800s, the area was originally known as Bayswater. After that it was annexed by Ottawa approximately 100 years later. The neighbourhood is served by the O-train Trillium Line and frequent bus service along several avenues. The area makes an excellent choice for those relocating to Ottawa and looking for a quiet neighbourhood with strong connections to the rest of the city.

Civic Hospital is known for its beautiful historic architecture as well as strong neighbourhood associations. The Civic Pharmacy Building sign, located at the corner of Carling and Holland Avenues, was installed in 1960. It was inspired by Googie architecture. It is a local landmark. The community is also known for its many excellent examples of “Younghusband” homes, which were built by David Younghusband in the 1940s. Younghusband was a residential architect and building contractor whose homes were typically Arts and Crafts style with brick construction. The Civic Hospital Homeowners Association, established in 1973, and the Civic Hospital Neighbourhood Association, established in 1982, encourage residents to socialize and improve their community.

Offering the best of living in Ottawa, Civic Hospital is home to many beautiful parks, including Reid Park, Fairmont Park, and Central Experimental Farm. Amenities include skating rinks, tennis courts, playgrounds, and gardens, all of which are managed by local residents.
