Just a short 15 km commute from downtown Ottawa is the suburb of Orléans. Residents are able to enjoy a wide array of activities right in their own backyard! The Ray Friel Recreational Complex helps keep young and old active all year with multiple skating rinks, an indoor wave pool, a fully equipped gym, and a space dedicated to practicing karate. There are endless options for shopping, including big box stores, small boutiques, and the Place d’Orléans mall where over 175 shops and services are available. Leisure time during the summer is well spent at Petrie Island Park, where two large sandy beaches run alongside the Ottawa River. Residents of all ages will find something interesting happening at the centrally located Shenkman Arts Centre, which is host to dozens of live theatre performances and art exhibitions each year.
Orléans is the ideal location to live, work, and play!
