What is Hunt Club?
We have a mixed demographic as to age groups, ethnocultural backgrounds, socio-economic levels and family units. Our neighbourhood includes single-family dwellings, semi-detached and townhouse units, apartment buildings, retirement homes and co-ops offering rent-to-income housing and village-like living.
We have a large amount of green space including the Sawmill Creek wetlands, our own Hunt Club Creek and the Rideau River shoreline. Our Community also houses seven city parks: Cahill, McCarthy, Owl, Paul Landry, Riverwood, Uplands, and Uplands Riverside.
Our community is within walking distance of many amenities such as shopping and other services and is within an easy driving distance of most areas of Ottawa. We’re a 5‑minute drive from the Ottawa International Airport and its hotels and convention centre. The pedestrian bridge over the Airport Parkway offers walking and cycling access to the Sawmill Creek Wetland, the South Keys Transit Way and the South Keys shopping centre.
Hunt Club has the second largest complex of Asian markets and services in Ottawa, including the T&T store at Hunt Club and Riverside Drive.
The Hunt Club Riverside Park Community Centre offers many opportunities for exercise and other activities.
The prestigious Ottawa Hunt Club and Golf Club has been a part of the community for over 100 years.
History of Hunt Club
Our area was called The Uplands by early settlers – it was one of the first to emerge from the glacial Champlain Sea, which results in a number of unique plant communities in the area, notably at the Leitrim wetland. As late as Col.By’s surveys for the Rideau Canal, it was still heavily forested.
