Copeland Park is a wonderful family friendly neighbourhood located in the west end of Ottawa. It is bounded to the west by Erindale Road and Maitland Avenue, to the south by Baseline Road, to the east by Clyde Avenue and to the north by the Central Experimental Farm Pathway.
The community was built in the 1950s and 1960s primarily by builder A.B. Taylor Construction using Architects Norman Dobell and S.A. Gitterman. The result was some of the best examples of mid-century modern design by a tract builder in the City of Ottawa! During the 1970's, more townhouses and three high-rises were built on Baseline Road at Clyde Avenue named the Century Manor Towers. These 3 similar buildings were constructed as a joint venture between the local company Aselford-Martin and Bramalea Consolidated Developments Limited.
The neighbourhood is home to three parks, it's namesake Copeland Park on Navaho Drive, Agincourt Park, and Greenlawn Park. Many residents make great use of the bike path just north of Castlehill Crescent which connects to the NCC pathways connecting the city. There are two schools: Agincourt Public School and Tancook Bell School which also features a daycare. Wal-Mart shopping complex and an office building are walking distance from the community.
The population of the neighbourhood is roughly 4150. Many new families are choosing this area over suburban neighbourhoods to avoid lengthy commutes to downtown. As a result, housing prices are increasing and days on market are decreasing as new listed homes are being snapped up.
