Neighbourhood Spotlight: Westboro

Westboro, as the name suggests, is located just West of downtown Ottawa, right next to Hintonburg. Where Wellington Street West and Richmond Road meet, there’s a cornucopia of gorgeous condominiums and quirky low rise buildings with character, locally owned shops, hair salons, coffee shops, bakeries, restaurants, pubs and yoga studios. It seems like everyone walking the streets of Westboro is holding a green smoothie in one hand and a yoga-mat under their other arm. This neighbourhood is a health-fanatic’s dream, with all the organic shopping choices and vegan restaurants one could possibly imagine. As trendy and urban as Westboro is, it also offers the beauty of the outdoors with scenic views of Gatineau hills and its very own beach, located walking distance from the main strip. This neighbourhood is truly a convenient and hip spot for movers and shakers. Westboro is also an amazing spot for families, as there are plenty of parks, daycare facilities, and schools.

As Westboro is located relatively near the Downtown core, it makes for an extremely easy spot to be as far as transportation goes. Drivers have easy access to the highway (or the scenic route, if preferred), walkers and cyclists have the option to take the parkway, and if you’re taking the bus, there are several stops located along Wellington and Richmond, as well as two major stations; Westboro station and Tunney’s Pasture.

Over the past 10 years, Westboro has had a major development makeover, causing the price of real estate to rapidly increase. That being said, the reconstruction of this neighbourhood has made it a gorgeous, safe, walker’s and foodie’s paradise that is definitely worth the price tag.
