Situated at Southam Way in Barrhaven, a quiet corner of Ottawa, Chapman Mills is home to a number of neighbourhood amenities growing families will appreciate.

An eclectic mix of detached houses, condos and townhouses, the new Minto enclave is down the street from a number of schools. Your kids can walk to class every morning as there are plenty of neighbourhood options to choose from: Jean-Robert Gauthier, a French Catholic Elementary school, is located on Chapman Mills Drive, as is the St. Emily English Catholic School, while the Pierre-Savard High School is just up the street on Longfields Drive. There’s also the Champman Mills Public School on Leamington Way.

The community is also grounded in green space with a 13-acre wooded park at its heart. Whether you’re looking for a place to take the kids or space to let your dog run free, there are a variety of parks around including the Chapman Mills Main Street Park, a wide open space with a playground. Other area parks include Greenpointe Park and South Nepean Park, which is home to a football field and softball diamond.

If you’re looking for something a little wilder the enclave is just north of where the Jock River and Rideau River meet. The forested Heart’s Desire Park is perfect for hiking while David Bartlett Park is a great place to let your dog run off leash.

We can’t forget the Chapman Mills Conservation Area! The 23-acre parcel of land is on the west bank of the Rideau River and is home to a natural river shoreline, wetlands and flood plains. Walkways and boardwalks provide a 1.5-kilometre trail along the water with a number of scenic lookouts along the way.

Mindful of the importance of having a bit of greenery in daily life, Minto’s plans are quite innovative, incorporating both wide and shallow lots, pocket parks and landscaped traffic circles into the community.

If this sounds like a lifestyle that appeals to you, be sure to visit the sales centre at 102 Southam Way. It’s open Monday to Thursday from noon to 8 pm and weekends from 11 am to 6 pm.

Made up of 241 residences, homes at Chapman Mills range from $218,900 to $572,900.
