Barrhaven is Ottawa’s southwestern suburb, and like Ottawa’s other suburbs, combines homes and features from the middle of the twentieth century with amenities and housing whose building is ongoing. Quality home builders, naturally pleasant geographical features such as the Rideau and Jock Rivers, and schools that regularly rank near the top of the Fraser Institute’s School Rankings Index have made Barrhaven the choice of more and more families to call home over the past twenty-five years.
Barrhaven existed as part of the old city of Nepean, prior to Ottawa’s amalgamation. Wikipedia says that the area that is now Barrhaven was once a long inhabited area of the First Nations people of the area. It was in the late 19th century that the area started to become home to a number of farmsteads. The old Barrhaven School House (built in 1906) still stands at the corner of Jockvale and Strandherd Roads and stands as a testament to this period in Barrhaven’s history.
It was in the 1960s that Barrhaven began to take shape as it exists today. The first suburban development in Barrhaven was built by builders like Johanssen, Cadillac Fairview, and Holitzner in the area that today is known as Old Barrhaven, west of Greenbank Road and just south of Fallowfield Road. In the intervening years, Johanssen and Cadillac Fairview have disappeared from Barrhaven’s building landscape, but other popular builders like Minto, Richcraft, Mattamy, Monarch, and others have joined Holitzner over the years in building a community that homeowners are proud to call home. With the opening of the Vimy Memorial Bridge connecting Barrhaven and Riverside South and the relocation of the RCMP Headquarters to the former JDS Uniphase Campus in Barrhaven’s east end, Barrhaven continues to grow and continues to see an influx of families and young professionals.
