Rockcliffe Park, located in Ottawa’s east end, is home to some of the city’s most prestigious real estate. Bordered by the Ottawa River, Rockcliffe Park Pavilion and McKay Lake, the upscale neighbourhood has a park-like feel, with large heritage homes on spacious lots, sprawling green space and gardens, and quiet, winding streets lined with old-growth trees. With quick and easy access to downtown Ottawa and such stunning real estate throughout, this is one of Ottawa’s most desirable neighbourhoods.

For outdoorsy types, Rockcliffe has many parks, clubs and waterways to take advantage of all year round. The Ottawa New Edinburgh Club offers tennis, rowing and sailing. The small and friendly Rockcliffe Lawn Tennis Club offers tennis in the spring and summer months, and the marina on the Ottawa River gives boaters a chance to take advantage of the fleeting Ottawa boating season.
