The suburban neighbourhood of Kanata Lakes is located in the west-end of the City of Ottawa situated primarily north of the Queensway, south of Morgan’s Grant, west of Beaverbrook and east of Huntmar Road leading towards the Canadian Tire Centre, home of the NHL’s Ottawa Senators. Buying a home in this area offers many choices because of the various styles and price ranges. Most of the homes in Kanata Lakes were built after 1988 consisting mostly of single family homes, townhomes as well as some condominiums. Most of the initially built homes in Kanata Lakes were built around a 9-hole golf course which was further expanded to an 18-hole course. Current new construction is happening in local neighbourhoods of Arcadia and Richardson Ridge. Development of lands is currently underway north of the Beaverpond and east of Terry Fox Drive where new homes will be constructed for many more years to come.
There are plenty of things to do in Kanata Lakes. It is known for its expansive greenspace comprising 40% of the lands including the golf course. There are plenty of scenic walking, running, hiking and biking trails in and around Kanata Lakes. The Beaver Pond within Kanata Lakes is recognized as a provincially protected wetland providing a habitat to various protected species. The Beaver Pond also provides a scenic 2 km trail around it. Outdoor rinks, indoor rinks, splash pads, play structures, tennis courts and soccer fields are plentiful for young and old to enjoy. The golf course lands provides the local community with further activities through the months of October to May where you will find young and old walking, cross country skiing and sledding. Indoor fun can also be had at one of Ottawa’s largest movie theaters located in Centrum Shopping Centre. Tanger Outlet Mall is situated close to Kanata Lakes where you will find brand-name and fashion apparel. The many restaurants, coffee shops, grocery and other local stores from family run shops to big box stores means you don’t need to travel far for your everyday needs.
What We Like About Kanata Lakes
Kanata Lakes was designed as a master planned community unlike any other in the Ottawa area. From day one it was designed for families in mind. It is a place where you can truly live, work and play. The attraction for Kanata Lakes was very clear from the beginning with the larger more mature lots surrounded by much greenspace. It is a place where families can play and children can flourish. When designing the community there was a desire to create a space where you could build your dream home, ensure that top rated schools were close by and that there was a perfect mix and blend of shopping, transportation and green space. I have loved this community for the maturity and the incredible beauty of the streets and the people who make up Kanata Lakes.
