Westboro is the perfect mix of urban living and community for those who want plenty of amenities but a village feel to their neighbourhood. The area has beautiful condos with fantastic views of the Ottawa river and older homes on tree-lined streets. The neighbourhood has much to offer for those that enjoy an active lifestyle including yoga studios, spin studios and a large MEC for all your outdoor adventures. Bordered on the east by Island Park Drive, the Ottawa River to the north and Carling Avenue to the south ensures residents have easy access to bike paths that will take you along the river, to Gatineau park or a quick ride to the beach.
For those interested in the food scene, you can enjoy sushi at MHK, or grab some house made sausages, pickles and other delicious treats at The Piggy Market. The combination of shops, houses and access to transit has made Westboro one of the most sought after areas in Ottawa over the last few years. The neighbourhood also hosts a lively festival each August – Westboro Fuse – which celebrates music, art and life. Let’s not forget there is also a beach!
