Orléans City History
As a suburban area within the dynamic city of Ottawa, Orléans is conveniently located in the eastern part of the city along the beautiful Ottawa River. Within a short 16 km (10 miles) commute to the downtown Ottawa area, the area of Orléans is quickly becoming a highly coveted place to buy real estate and raise families.
Orléans Real Estate
The Orléans real estate market has continued its steady growth as a suburban community since the late 1970s. Areas that are experiencing major growth include its southern and easternmost boundaries where development has included the building of new single-family homes and more commercial development. Because Orléans is in an affluent suburb of Ottawa, larger single-family homes and some of the finest schools are prominent factors in its growth and popularity.
What to do in Orléans
One of the more popular attractions is the Place d’Orleans shopping centre. Offering shoppers over 175 stores, this shopping destination is located just off the Queensway. Other diversions in Orléans include the Elizabeth Manley skating rink at the Orléans Sportsplex.
