the neighbourhood

Westboro has in recent years become one of Ottawa’s most desirable neighbourhoods. Built on a human scale without Uppertown’s chaos and office towers, Westboro has attracted fine restaurants and destination retailers like Clocktower, Mountain Equipment Coop, Bushtukah and Trailhead. With your trail bike or hiking gear, you are just steps away from the best recreational trail network in the region. Despite Westboro’s newfound cachet and eclecticism, it is a mature established neighbourhood with many churches, community facilities, mature trees and recreational parks.

the history

The history of Westboro stretches back to the early days of Bytown. The rail and trolley lines have played an important role in linking this small village to greater Ottawa and the rest of Ontario. The Central Canada Railway connecting Ottawa to Brockville had a flag stop and small station in Westboro just north of the development site of Westboro Station. Immediately to the south of the Byron Avenue right-of-way ran the electric trolley service which allowed downtowners to ride all the way to the sunny and cooling beaches of Britannia Park. The final trolley ran to Britannia in the summer of 1959. Today, the old right-of-way is a treeshaded park extending a welcoming arm to the
west from the doorstep of Westboro Station.
