Nestled between the Rideau River and the Rideau Canal, Sandy Hill is a residential neighbourhood popular with students and families.
Thanks to its proximity to the University of Ottawa, Sandy Hill is home to many students, but is also favoured by families who enjoy this quaint neighbourhood. The accommodation on offer reflects the diversity of its residents. Condos abound closer to the university campus, but in other areas you’ll also find detached family homes and magnificent mansions (some of which have been turned into embassies). With leafy canal walks, Strathcona Park, a number of schools and a smattering of trendy bars, cafes and shops, Sandy Hill may be small, but it certainly caters to the masses.
