Ottawa’s vibrant neighbourhoods

Ottawa is a compact city where you can enjoy lively urban experiences within a relaxed natural setting. Just beyond the walkable city centre, you’ll find diverse neighbourhoods that exude local vibes. Taste local flavours at Ottawa’s great restaurants, find treasures at independently owned boutiques, visit a local coffee roaster or cool off with a locally-made frozen treat – all while admiring  urban art along the way.

Take a walk with us through some of Ottawa’s neighbourhoods, where you’ll feel neighbourly — not touristy!
