Living in Highland Park
On the edge of the scenic Ottawa River, you will discover the neighbourhood of Highland Park. Rich in history, this sub-neighbourhood of Westboro is located between Richmond Road and Carling Avenue, Denbury Avenue and Churchill Avenue. About half of main street of Westboro Village is surrounded by the community. Four of the major schools are Broadview Public, Churchill Alternative, Nepean and Notre Dame High Schools.
In the heart of Highland Park is a hidden oasis – the Highland Park Lawn Bowling Club. For over 100 years, this club has encouraged residents of all-ages to try their hand at the sport. While typically seen as an “old person’s game”, many who take part in the Highland Park Lawn Bowling Club are middle aged or younger, and enjoy the social and competitive elements of the sport.
Given the lawn bowling club has survived for over 100 years, it should come as no surprise Highland Park is home to supporters of active transportation. The community is easily reached by the efficient and convenient OC Transpo, and residents enjoy accessible paths for walking, running or cycling. The community is surrounded by Westboro Kiwanis Park, Tillbury Park and McKellar Park, giving families plenty of choices for outdoor playtime adventures.
Highland Park is a sought-after community with a village-like feel thanks to a multitude of dwelling types, large lots and the absence of street curbs and sidewalks. Whether you are thinking about purchasing, renting or investing, Highland Park offers an eclectic mix of mid-century to modern homes, apartments and condominiums.
