Home to the high-tech industry, Kanata real estate encompasses one of the largest suburbs in Ottawa and is made up of diverse smaller communities. From the more mature areas such as Kanata Lakes, Beaverbrook, Katimavik, Bridlewood, and Glencairn. To newer developments such as Blackstone, Emerald Meadows, Heritage Hills, and Fairwinds, there is a home for every buyer considering living in Kanata.
Unlike other suburbs, Kanata was designed to have a mix of densities and commercial and residential properties.
Kanata is a safe, family-friendly suburb with highly rated schools, plenty of parks, great shopping, a variety of restaurants, and things to do.
For families with an active lifestyle, there are an abundance of parks and trails for walking and cycling. A few activity centres are the Kanata Recreational Complex which has programs for families and children with 2 full-size hockey arenas. In the winter, you can enjoy snow activities such as tobogganing and skating on the rink. Swimmers will appreciate the Kanata Leisure Centre and Wave pool.
When it comes to entertainment, you can enjoy hockey games, other sporting events, concerts, comedy shows, Disney on ice, and other events at the 18,000 seat Canadian Tire Centre (CTC), which is home to the Ottawa Senators NHL Hockey team.
Kanata Centrum is Ottawa’s third-largest shopping centre. This outdoor mall has over 81 brand-name stores and 28 different restaurants. In addition, the recently built Tanger Outlet has over 75 designer stores, specialty shops, and food venues.
The luxury Brookstreet Hotel is in the middle of the Kanata Research Park, surrounded by the first of two urban 18-hole golf courses, called the Marshes Golf Club, and is open to the general public.
In the Kanata Lakes area, there is the second of two urban, 18-hole golf courses in Kanata for Club Link members.
