Why Wateridge Village at Rockcliffe is a Work/Life/Play Dream Come True

The beauty of living in Wateridge Village at Rockcliffe is your close connection to both the excitement offered by Ottawa’s cultural hotspots, and the gorgeous green spaces provided by the Rockcliffe Park neighbourhood. This mix is ideal for helping you create that work/life/play balance we keep hearing so much about—but never seem quite able to achieve!


Primely located east of downtown and south of the picturesque Ottawa River, Wateridge Village offers something for everyone. No matter your vibe, you’ll find excellent variety in terms of home style options, everyday convenient amenities, as well as a never-ending list of things to do.


Green Space on Your Doorstep

The importance of having access to nature, parks, walking trails and more is vital for any modern lifestyle. Green space offers us the ability to connect with our community, the world around us and the peace of mind only nature can bring. 


Living in Wateridge Village means that you’re never far from the green spaces you love to enjoy, wander and discover. Just outside your door you’ll find beautiful community parks like the Town Square, Centre Parkette and Southwest Parkette, ideal for family recreation, impromptu picnics or a little frisbee toss under the sun. Or, head on over to enjoy the serene Ottawa River to take in a relaxing walk or bike ride, or even a heart-pumping jog. A short drive will also take you across the river to find endless adventure and rich biodiversity in Gatineau Park, a 361 km2 conservation area that’s Canada’s second-most visited park.


Buzzing Urban Culture

Balancing out the calm offered by nature is your easy access to the vibrant culture, fantastic festivals and exciting nightlife offered by downtown Ottawa.


A quick drive will whisk you downtown to taste local cuisine, discover a new cocktail, or even take in some art at the National Gallery of Canada. In summer, check out the world-famous Ottawa Jazz Festival or Ottawa BluesFest at LeBreton Flats, and in winter, be sure to lace up and head to the Rideau Canal for a skate through the city. Ottawa’s Canada Day celebration is, not surprisingly, the biggest and best in the country, and there’s nothing quite like being on Parliament Hill in downtown Ottawa on July 1st.


A Little Retail Therapy

And then come those days when we just need a little retail therapy—whether it’s for an essential item or that extra special treat. At Wateridge Village, you’ll enjoy convenient access to options for both. In downtown Ottawa, you’ll find both the Rideau Centre or, for something unique, go for a wander through Ottawa’s charming Byward Market to experience local culture and find those hidden gems you can’t anywhere else.


Find all your favourite stores a short drive away at the St. Laurent Shopping Centre. Hungry? You never will be with fantastic grocery stores right nearby, including Metro and Loblaws. So, if it’s the freedom to craft your ideal work/life/play balance in an Ottawa community that perfectly blends nature and urban life, then Wateridge Village at Rockcliffe is a fantastic option.
