Ryan Farm is one of the many desirable west end Ottawa neighbourhoods in which we frequently list homes for sale. Bounded by Woodroffe and Rowley Avenues on the west and east and by Lotta Avenue and Meadowlands Drive on the north and south, the neighbourhood has seen substantial growth and change in recent years. With expansions at Algonquin College and development nearby along Merivale and Baseline Roads, many young families have been attracted to Ryan Farm for its convenient location and attractive properties, including single detached homes, duplexes, and smaller-scale condos. Local residents have been working recently to revive their community association, which hosts neighbourhood events and advocates to the city government on local issues, demonstrating that this is a vibrant community with a distinct neighbourly feel.
Part of the former city of Nepean, Ryan Farm offers all the conveniences of urban living with easy access to Ottawa’s outdoor lifestyle. Shopping and other amenities are close at hand along Woodroffe Avenue and Merivale Road, and access to the Queensway an other major transportation corridors means that downtown and the rest of the city is just minutes away. In addition to being major employers in the area, Algonquin College and the Ottawa city offices at Centrepointe provide many opportunities for recreation and entertainment, including the public library, Centrepointe Theatre, skating rinks, concerts, and festivals. There is ample parkland within walking distance, including Ryan Farm park, along Parkglen Drive, which includes a playground and a baseball diamond. The Nepean Museum, located on Rowley Avenue at the eastern edge of the neighbourhood, provides fascinating exhibits that highlight the area’s agricultural past.
