Old Ottawa South is an older urban neighbourhood located between the Rideau Canal to the north, and the Rideau River to the south. Carleton University can be found at Old Ottawa South’s western edge. It is home to over 6,200 residents and is considered an upper-middle-class area.
Much like its neighbour, The Glebe, Old Ottawa South is attractive to homeowners due to its proximity to the Rideau Canal, the commercial amenities on Bank St. and the fact that it is within walking distance of Lansdowne Park.
