Rockcliffe Park is the most beautiful and historic neighbourhood of Ottawa. Rockcliffe Park is also known as the Village to the residents. The Village is northeast of downtown Ottawa. It combines exceptional natural beauty, world-class heritage homes, and excellent public and private schools. All this is only a few minutes from shopping along Beechwood Avenue, the ByWard Market and Parliament Hill. The Ottawa River and the Sir George-Étienne Cartier Parkway help to define the Park.
The Village of Rockcliffe Park was always planned to be a special place to live. The original plan from 1864 called for winding roads with large residential lots and no commercial development. There is still no commercial activity in the Village.
Rockcliffe Park has been the home to many Ottawa notables, including former prime ministers, senior civil servants, corporate leaders and many ambassadors to Canada. The Village is famous for its park-like setting, with majestic trees lining the narrow winding streets. When driving in Rockcliffe Park, it is like passing through a renowned estate. Each home is unique in its design and natural setting. There are also parks, including the Centennial Gardens of the Village Green and the Jubilee Garden. The entire Village is designated as a Heritage Conservation District.
