The Ottawa River borders it to the north, with Parkdale Avenue to the west and the O-Train tracks to the east. Just over 2,200 people call it home. Most of the area is residential, with a few small businesses and green spaces. That lends itself to a quiet atmosphere, more like a cozy hometown than a big city area. Many of the homes are older, but have been well maintained over time. Recently, some high-rise apartment buildings and townhouses have been constructed, allowing more people to move into the neighborhood.

Being close to other great areas of town is also important, so you can explore new places easily.
