About Nepean

Nepean is home to a long list of smaller, mature neighbourhoods in the southwest part of Ottawa. The neighbourhoods overlooking Mooney's Bay and Hog's Back are a mix of townhomes and high-rise apartments. These communities are very diverse, offering everything from single-family homes to townhomes, as well as many rentals. Closer to Merivale rd, the neighbourhoods become more suburban, a bit quieter, and more family-oriented, with predominately detached single-family homes, duplexes, and town homes.

Much of the area has experienced rapid growth in recent years, including an extensive shopping district along Merivale Rd, as well as Meadowlands Drive that benefit local residents shopping accessibility needs.

Since there are many young, family-oriented communities throughout Nepean, there are a long list of schools that have been built to accommodate the many students in the area.

There are 2 Golf Courses, a driving range, three marinas, an equestrian park, toboggan hill, and two beaches along the Ottawa River, along with many small dog parks just about in every smaller neighbourhood.

Keeping residents safe, healthy and happy, the Carling Campus of the Ottawa Hospital is close by.
