Located along the Ottawa River, Westboro is bordered on the east by Island Park Drive, and on the west by Woodroffe. The area offers a great variety of homes for sale including single and multifamily developments as well as rentals.
The annual Westfest music festival held in June is a free event and a great attraction for the area. The neighborhood boasts a concentration of outdoors and sport stores including Mountain Equipment Co-op, Lululemon Athletica, Bushtukah, The Expedition Shoppe and Trailhead. In addition, Westboro is close to cycling trails and whitewater rapids on the Ottawa River. Boutiques, restaurants and coffee shops on Richmond Road have helped turn Westboro into a very trendy neighborhood.
Several new Ottawa condos are encouraging densification and promising to bring more people to the neighborhood. Many cottage-like residences still exist today, especially by the Ottawa River north of Scott Street, lending to Westboro real estate’s varied appeal.
