About Crystal Beach

Crystal Beach is a primarily residential neighbourhood with a strong sense of community, and over the years, has become one of the most desired real-estate locations in Ottawa. This family-friendly neighbourhood has primarily single-detached homes, as well as a range of condo buildings.

Much of Crystal Beach's appeal is due to its close proximity to the Nepean Sailing Club, Andrew Haydon Park, the Ottawa River, its award-winning neighbourhood design, easy access to the Queensway, quality schooling, community centre, and the recreational facilities within. Shopaholics like this triangular enclave for its proximity to the Bayshore Shopping Centre and the 15-minute commute to Downtown, while high-tech types enjoy a quick (about 5 minute) commute to the Kanata North Business Park. Public transportation is provided by OC Transpo, with Route 152 as the primary route for the community.

The schools in Crystal Beach are:

  • Saint Thomas Elementary
  • Bayshore Catholic Elementary
  • Lakeview Public School
  • Viewmount Christian Academy
  • Bayshore Public School

A cool feature of this neighbourhood:

The key factor to this enclave is its close proximity to gorgeous water views and waterfront sand!
