Findlay Creek is a vibrant suburban neighbourhood nestled in the Gloucester-South Nepean Ward in the south end of Ottawa, Ontario, Canada. With a population of 14,089 according to the 2021 Canadian Census, it is a bustling community known for its family-friendly environment and beautiful landscapes.
The development of Findlay Creek began in the early 2000s. In May 1988, the Regional Municipality of Ottawa-Carleton started rezoning this future urban area, with official plans released a year later. Despite initial pushback from groups like the Ottawa Field Naturalists Club, the area has grown to become a sought-after destination for home buyers.
The community features large property sizes, wide streets, parks, and a variety of housing options that cater to different needs. The homes in Findlay Creek include single-family homes, semi-detached homes, townhouses, and small condo buildings. Notably, the Findlay Creek Village, opened in 2002, is a master-planned community featuring two builders - Tartan Homes and Tamarack Homes.
Findlay Creek is not only a residential area but also hosts a small shopping centre and three gas stations. The neighbourhood also offers numerous recreational opportunities, with several parks featuring play structures, basketball courts, and open play spaces. Additionally, there are local craft beer and craft cocktails available at Crust and Crate, an artisan fast fired pizza pub with gastropub fare located in Findlay Creek.
One of the unique aspects of Findlay Creek is the Leitrim Boardwalk, a 500m path that winds through a provincially significant wetland south of the Findlay Creek community. This area, rich in biodiversity, is home to 90 bird species throughout the year and 40 migratory species during migration. It is designated as an area of natural and scientific interest and serves as a headwater feature of Findlay Creek.
The Findlay Creek Community Association represents the interests of the community, ensuring that the voice of the residents is heard.
Whether you are searching for a place that offers an active outdoor lifestyle, diverse housing options, or a strong sense of community, Findlay Creek may just be the perfect spot for you!
