A Student’s Paradise
The sprawling, program-and-event-packed Carleton University campus borders the entire Western edge of Old Ottawa South, making the community a popular choice for homeowners who are either soon-to-be students or have younger household members ready to enroll. Plus, transportation to alternatives such as Algonquin College and the University of Ottawa is made easier with the Trillium Line, Confederation Line, and OC Transpo access right from campus stations and elsewhere in the area. Along with plenty of shops, restaurants, and a thriving nightlife scene along Bank Street cutting through the neighbourhood, this is a veritable paradise for students and those seeking to attract them to their businesses for employment or as new customers. If you have a younger family, your kids may be the perfect fit for Hopewell Public School, one of the local elementary schools providing excellent education for K-8 students.
Plenty to See and Do
Old Ottawa South is very much like an island surrounded by countless entertainment, shopping, and dining opportunities. Cross the bridge to the North and you’ll enter the colourful wonderland that is the Glebe, complete with the event-rich TD Place and Aberdeen Pavilion and countless mom-and-pop shops that are one-of-a-kind. Or, cross the Rideau River to the South into Billings Bridge Shopping Centre to stock up on groceries, do your banking, have lunch with friends or even sign up for driving lessons. Talk about convenient – everything you could need and much more can be found just outside your doorstep!
